Battle of the Weeds and GNO

So I finally have an area where I can start gardening. I'm really excited about this....and I've already learned a lot. I've learned mostly about weeds, because before you can start planting....you have to get rid of them. I've also learned that the people before us didn't really have much of a garden because some of the weeds I've been battling have roots nearly as thick as two of my fingers that go half way to China! There are some weeds that are like okay, I don't belong here you can take me. These are so easy to pull. Then there are weeds who know they don't belong there but don't want to go. I had to work a little to get them out. Then there are the devils weed. I fought with one for prolly half an hour. I won...mostly. These are the weeds...





As a child we would love these, they have little seeds that look like cheese wheels, so we called them cheesies. We would harvest the "cheese" and eat it. As an adult, I hate them. They hate me. We are not friends, nor will we ever be. I will wage war against these weeds until they have been completely exterminated. At least in my garden. And my lawn. And maybe all of Cedar City.

A brief farewell to our Beta Gus Gus who we will miss. He came with us cross state three times, and I've had him since before we got married. how long are Betas supposed to live? Just looked it up....they should live about 3 years....that's how old he was so I guess that's good.

There is one more thing I would like to post before I go...my mother in law's family has a girls nite once a month it's fun. All the Aunts, Sisters, Cousins, Nieces over the age of 18 get together for dinner. It's a laugh. We have a really good time. I was wondering if anyone down here in Southern Utah would be interested in doing something like that. Leave a comment and let me know and if it's something people are interested in, I will organize it.

I'd love to do a girls night!!! My schedule is hard, but if you planned it I'd try to make it!

I'm always game for trying to make it to a girl's night :)

Shut up! We used to call those "cheesies" and we used to eat them to. Once as an adult I ate one just to see what it tasted like. That I would not recommend.
