I have to say, I’m with Bossy’s husband here. ‘Cause that there are some crazy weeds!
Tara R. saysSeptember 13, 2008 at 12:44 pm
bwahahaha… I have that EXACT same problem!!
BH saysSeptember 13, 2008 at 12:54 pm
I think this photo deserves an UPDATE!!!

i think it’s a good statement on the juxtaposition of man against nature.
and also? whenever i need to defend something i did in a slackerly half-assed way, i use words like juxtaposition and try to pass it off as art and stuff.

My husband would say, “Dig it all up and pour concrete!”
Domestic Extraordinaire saysSeptember 13, 2008 at 1:06 pm
we have something similar on the side of our driveway. My hubby says, we can kill it with rock salt. I say, so go buy the darn rock salt already.
Cheri @ Blog This Mom! saysSeptember 13, 2008 at 1:07 pm
Which one of Bossy’s husbands said that?
chocolatechic saysSeptember 13, 2008 at 1:09 pm
I have this stuff in a squirt bottle that eliminates weeds at the press of a button.
Ellie saysSeptember 13, 2008 at 1:44 pm
Is my husband YOUR husband too??
corrie saysSeptember 13, 2008 at 2:28 pm
From the looks of the finished project, ‘finish why?’ is the question?
Looks the same either way, quack grass or rocks…

I’m going to quote Patrick from SpongeBob SquarePants
“It’s like my mom always said: ‘if you can’t say something nice about someone, don’t blow your nose into you hand'”

Good thing Bossy has lots of backup husbands.
Meg saysSeptember 13, 2008 at 3:20 pm
We have something like that in our drainage ditch next to the road. Does Rock Salt kill those weeds? BEcause if it does, I’m all over it. Send Domestic Extraordinaire’s husband over with it, would you please?
Michelle saysSeptember 13, 2008 at 3:48 pm
Well, at least half of it looks lovely.
magpie saysSeptember 13, 2008 at 3:57 pm
Time for the Roundup?
Tootsie Farklepants saysSeptember 13, 2008 at 4:39 pm
I laughed HARD at Jason’s comment!
Bush Babe saysSeptember 13, 2008 at 5:46 pm
I’m assuming BH is Bossy’s Husband?? Has he finished the job and now needs a big round of applause?? Cause I’m married to a wonderful man who has about five acres of clover to attend to, a job that has mysteriously stalled, who probably WOULD finish if only he KNEW that half the western world was ready to APPLAUD. Cause he’s a male. And they love applause!!! I am ready to clap…
Martha saysSeptember 13, 2008 at 6:34 pm
Should we all just pay for lawn service and give up?
Mr Farty saysSeptember 13, 2008 at 6:36 pm
What? It looks fine to me.
Peg saysSeptember 13, 2008 at 7:11 pm
What Mr. Farty said. Truly looks better than my drive. Give BH some props!
David saysSeptember 13, 2008 at 8:03 pm
Considering Bossy’s self-reported record on finishing weekend task lists, I would wager the Bossy household dresses in the basement due to all the glass walls.
Rhea saysSeptember 13, 2008 at 9:28 pm
damn, girl, you know how to grow some weeds. That looks like my backyard, minus the rocks.
Jenn @ Juggling Life saysSeptember 13, 2008 at 10:38 pm
You’re sure he didn’t say “Finish what?!”
Debby saysSeptember 13, 2008 at 10:54 pm
If it’s any consolation it took 2 trips to the home improvement store, a LOT of cussing and about 4 hours to hang one effing light over the kitchen table here.
At this rate, we’ll be done (and divorced) by 2016
April saysSeptember 14, 2008 at 12:23 am
Best weedkiller money can buy and non-toxic: vinegar and lemon juice (I suggest Costco!).
The Stiletto Mom saysSeptember 14, 2008 at 10:44 am
My husband and Bossy’s husband may have been separated at birth. You have inspired me to take a picture of my side yard (after he recovers from my post about his love of publicly displayed trash cans) so everyone can see my weeds too.
Chesapeake Bay Woman saysSeptember 14, 2008 at 10:56 am
While there is definitely such a thing as a bad husband, I can honestly say I’ve never met a good weeding project.
dexter saysSeptember 14, 2008 at 11:28 am
If you hire a lawn service, make sure it isnt trugreen! it only took them $1600 and 3 months to ruin my lawn. Bravo you morons good work
Isle Dance saysSeptember 14, 2008 at 11:38 am
Leaf, probably... saysSeptember 14, 2008 at 5:12 pm
Weeding is for people who don’t have serious weekend plans involving naps and wine.
Dani saysSeptember 14, 2008 at 5:31 pm
The big weeds like that are the easy ones. It’s the little butty ones that are hard work. The big ones look most impressive when you’re done though.
Well done for sticking at it BH!
nutmeg saysSeptember 14, 2008 at 5:35 pm
Weeds? We call that expensive ground cover.
Angie @ KEEP BELIEVING saysSeptember 14, 2008 at 6:04 pm
Bossy’s husband sounds a lot like ME.
Also, this is the exact moment when I am like, Roundup, WHERE?
oliver rain saysSeptember 14, 2008 at 10:09 pm
Yeah, my gardener (why happens to be me) is fighting a losing battle with the weeds in our back lane. And it’s the little ones with the big roots that kill me.
CC saysSeptember 15, 2008 at 11:13 pm
I totally misread this (SEVERAL times) as “good WEDDING projects” LOL!
