The root of the problem

Weeds are lame. My wife & I have been weeding beds around our house to try to get it more ready to sell, and there are a lot of weeds. Weeds seem to grow all year round in the north west. Even though the grass isn’t growing, the weeds continue to grow, so when it’s warm enough and dry enough to weed, there are a lot of weeds and their roots are deep.

I’m convinced that weeds are a result of the fall. Or they’re a result of the modernization of society. I would like to know who decided that things like a mowed lawn are good, and dandelions are bad. Why do we have to put bark dust around our landscaping, why do we even have to do landscaping at all. If it were up to me we wouldn’t, but we want to sell our house, so we’ve given in. We want to do things that fly in the face of societal standards, but because we’re relying on people in society to buy our house, people who believe that landscaping is important we have to do it.

So we’re buying shrubbery. We’re buying flowers. We’re buying bark dust. We’re weeding. We don’t want to, but we are. Maybe at our next house we’ll buy a cow.
