Hoeing Grass Burrs vs Shoveling Snow
I'm trying to figure out which I would like to do more. I've never shoveled show in the cold but I've hoed a million grass burrs. I've pulled them up by the roots. I've put chemicals on with not much results. They just love our hot dry climate. Last year I thought I had them under control. It was going to be simple when I saw one new plant hoe it up by the roots. I think the devil is down there fertilizing them. My yard if full of them again and they seem to have gotten smart even. They grow close to the ground so the lawn mower mows right over them without cutting them. Guess I'll stay here and keep fighting them. Snow is beautiful but I think I may get cabin fever after a few days and shoveling seems more work then hoeing.
