Do you know what this is a pic of?
Remember I told you I bought a bunch of straw to use as mulch throughout my new garden space, between rows, unused areas, etc.? The shit was FULL of seeds! ACK! It was A-W-F-U-L. When I first realized what was happening I thought I’d be able to pull it all up, but that was a completely unrealistic idea – the shit was everywhere – and thick!
Call me a novice or just numb, but I thought ALL straw was seedless! Isn’t that what differentiates it from hay? I’d even spread this stuff around other parts of the yard, over grass seed. Needless to say the grass seed didn’t take and instead I’ve got areas of lawn that grows twice as fast as everywhere else. Waste of time and money! Look what Satan’s Straw Seed became ….
What started out as beautiful new garden space quickly became an ugly fenced in field. Seedlings were surrounded, struggling for light and water against what was supposed to help them. BLARGH :-S !
Could it get any worse?

BTW: Do you know what’s friggin’ GROSS? Slugs! It was raining one day and I figured it was a good time to go slay garden slugs. I killed A LOT, sliced them with the hoe. I came back later to kill more and I found a startling discovery – THEY EAT EACH OTHER!
So friggin’ gross, hanging out next to the herb bed chowing down on each other. You can even see their slime in the pics. I killed the cannibal slugs after taking the pictures. Blech ….. but I guess if the shit went down and good grub was hard to come by ….. I’d eat slugs, too.
