Too Many Weeds

There are too many weeds in my garden, Mom.
I don’t know where to begin.

There are too many weeds in my garden, Mom.
Can we just start over again?

There are too many weeds in my garden, Mom.
I can’t tell a weed from a sprout.

There are too many weeds in my garden, Mom.
Please, can you help a kid out?

There are too many weeds in my garden, Son.
The dock has grown wild and untamed.

There are too many weeds in my garden, Son.
The thistles have made me ashamed.

There are too many weeds in my garden, Son.
If we work together we’ll win.

There are too many weeds in my garden, Son.
It’s too late to start over again!

  1. Those are all weeds?! Some of them don’t look bad!

    • The big leafy ones are dock. I like them more than I do grass and thistle!

      • We got some stinging nettle at work that we need to get rid of. It is nice how it just happened to show up when I wanted to find some, and I did not even need to grow it in my own garden (which I would not do). Some of the weeds are useful. The big prickly thistle is a drag though.

  2. Brilliant!!!

    • Lambs quarters is one that grows in our garden and it is useful as well. I’ve heard that a weed is a plant in the wrong spot. I think that is true. Except thistles. They are true weeds!
