You mean simply lie down in defeat and let the weeds destroy all that is good and green in this world? I spent all last year doing that. Today was a day for military action, and by God, there were casualties.

Fuck yeah! Gardening inspires the shit out of me! That happens all the time. I wake up like, "Fuck you, aphids! I'm coming for you. Do you hear that, weeds? That's the sound of me coming after your sorry asses! I'm gonna pull you so fucking hard." And then I realise that I don't have a garden and I get all sad and stuff. True story.

If you've been to Australia, you would see what a tough climate it is. 90% of the country is desert. It is very hot, dry and there is an unbelievable amount of weeds and pest animals (snakes, spiders, drop bears).

How? Well because of the desert plants have to adapt to survive in dry conditions. They are lush and green like you would find in Europe. They're dry, hard and prickly. Prickly can cause punctures. Satisfied?

Also, almost every living thing can kill you there, be it spiders, fish, or trees. Yes, trees. Eucalyptus trees have a tendency to explode under certain conditions, which can be met in Australia.

57, I have never heard of exploding trees that is crazy if true. (googles) glad that my yard is mostly passionfruit vines. But if we don't mow our lawn enough we do get snakes and I live in the city so they really are everywhere.

I know how you feel op. I had to clear some stinging nettles out of my garden. Try getting some thicker gloves, wearing closed toe shoes, and jeans. You'll probably be really hot but maybe not as injured (:

I know you're being sarcastic but the gardener in me has to give you a tip...the aphid's natural preditor is the ladybug. So if you have aphids (we used to get them all over our roses) go buy some ladybugs, you'd be surprised how many nurserys carry them, and put them on the infested plant(s). There you go, my longwinded, mostly useless, random tip of the day

If this is indeed sarcasm, Doc, and you are making light of the extreme perils of weeding, then shame on you! This is no rabble of mindless weeds. These are year-old weeds. Their armour is thick, and their shields broad.
