Mamma Had A Baby And Her Head Popped Off

Probably not the most tasteful blog post title from a lady who just had a baby... But what else did you expect?

Bad to the phloem!

I'm still on the mend from that whole "baby having" experience 3 weeks ago-- But yard work, mainly weeding, waits for no mom.

As I sit around and mend, the Garlic Mustard, Dandelions and Bouncing Bet are taking over. Repeated bending is a real no-no with these stitches in my midsection so... What's a garden mamma to do?

I'm meeting the weeds halfway. It's the equivalent of shooting hoops granny-style.

I figure that if I can keep them from going to seed, well- that's something. So I just wait until they grow tall enough for me to meet halfway and I give a lame attempt at a "stoop" and just pop off their heads...

Remember that? What a great way to get kids to deadhead weeds!

I wonder what violent, sick genius came up with that...
