Redbush hasn't been blogging too much lately as she has spent the last week weeding and preparing the gardens for planting, then complaining about her aching body after. Yesterday, Redbush and Mr. Redbush spent the day digging up wicked weeds in the garden, namely quack grass. If you don't have this weed, consider yourself lucky. They have roots some 2 feet long and longer! As you dig, if you break any of the root off, or, even if you leave some of the root hairs, these weeds relish, and celebrate as they produce thousands of more plants. Redbush knows if you don't dig them up, that the rotivator will only spread the damage across the planting area. As Redbush and Mr. Redbush dug and pulled these dreaded plants, they wished that they could harness some of Bonzi's energy, changing it from squirrel chasing, and snooping for varmints to weed-digging! After his prolific squirrel-chasing episodes, he leads a life of relaxation, so, Redbush fired him! But, she knows that his come-back would be, " Well you've banned me from the garden, don't you remember, the last time I made crazy round and around trips in the fresh dirt, racing a hundred miles an hour." With the change in today's temperatures, he is now lounging on the mat in the house, resting from yesterday's activities. Ah, the life of riley! Redbush is wishing she had some of his agile muscles as she feels her aching back today! She has posted some pictures of Bonzi yesterday, and the change in weather today from yesterday's +20 temperatures to -0 degees today. Oh, she's so glad she didn't buy any bedding plants yet! She hopes you are all basking in the sun in your world!
