Time for a little gardening

I wrote my monthly garden column, then had to take a break. The boys gave me their cold. Why are these kid colds always so much worse when mom gets them?

Reading through my column, I detect subtle ways that this campaign has begun to permeate everything in my life. For example: Weeding in the spring is just beginning the battle. Summer weeding is a never-ending war. But weeding now means victory is in sight. If I can get all those greedy, tricky, tenacious, unwelcome residents out in the next week or so, the falling leaves will form a thick mulch and keep my soil safe until spring. Hmmm....weeds or Bushes? You make the call.
