Yesterday I spent part of the afternoon weeding the beds in front of the office. Don't worry--I didn't pull all of these myself! I'm dedicated, but I'm not THAT dedicated.

We had about eight people who turned out to help, though Erin, Georgia, Tom and I were the only ones to stay until the project was done. We ended up with a pile that was about two feet tall by three feet wide by six feet long. I find great pleasure in watching weeds wilt on the sidewalk after I've pulled them. It's as if I'm saying to them, "Ha! Take that! You thought you were so clever but I won this battle!"

We celebrated our victory by enjoying ice cream back inside where the air conditioning was blissfully cool. And I must say, the bed looks so nice now! I smiled as I walked by it this morning.

Wow, that's a lot of weeds! Mulch is the secret, spread it around!

@susan: Thanks! We do have several inches of mulch in the beds, but the weeds still pop up from time to time. Thankfully the mulch makes them easy to pull.
