Well it has been raining all night, thunder and lightening… and I woke up at 2.30 am and decided to go see about my cat, a kitten. He might be scared by the thunder. But he was fine and was purring nicely…
We have had so much rain lately, no point in going out to cut any grass today… maybe it will clear up by tomorrow. There is the dishes to do, I guess… but I love listening to the rain.
Grass, twitch grass is everywhere. I am not sure where it comes from. It is like g-d it just is in everything. And would you leave a piece of ground open, sometimes even the next day little tiny grass sprouts show their juicy tips.
Twitch Grass (Elytrigia Repens)
I read that it survives with underground root thread all over the place, you can really not get rid of it. However if you cover the earth with a piece of broadloom carpet for about a year you will have a fairly clean slate to start with.
I can see it now square footage of broadloom all over my garden… ehh no.
I know it has health benefits, you gather the roots in a big pile then you clean and dry them. The advantage is you get a good workout on the digging and then developing compassion seeing these little suckers on the drying rack slowly perish. But make no mistake, if you put them back in the ground, you can be sure to find more grass coming.
