Theory: The taller the weeds are, the less you have to bend over to pull them out.
I wish I could say this is a picture I got from googling "disturbing backyard overgrowth," but this actually is OUR backyard. It's okay though because I'm headed to the Utah Water Conservancy Gardens to get some tips on resurrecting our soil, planting something pretty, and helping it survive the winter.
Wish me luck.
I went ahead and googled "disturbing backyard overgrowth." They got nothing on us.
