Round two of spring weeding has now been completed in the backyard hosta garden. A loamy, low and moist area, some really bad stuff had taken root back there in an attempt to choke out the hostas. It took 4 ½ hours—and some nasty wounds—to go thru this time. One unpleasant invader is some variety of noxious weed that paralyzes your finger when it comes in contact. For three days, my index digit was numb. Wish I could learn the art of gardening with gloves but I just have to dig my hands in the dirt.
