Neverending Dirty, hard work by Hand

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

40 ft. tarp laid over thick ivy 6 weeks ago to kill it but its still growing.

I was outside at 6 AM gathering even more weeds for 7 AM pick-up.

I had 1,000's of weeds with their seeds in giant cans to be taken off property so there'd be no further infestation of invasive weeds.

How am I ever going to remove all this ivy. Some of the branches are 3 inches thick.

It took 4 days to pull weeds from the front easement by the road. Small weeds loaded with seeds ready to disperse. Next year its going to be better wit these now gone.

I've got all these overgrown shrubs to trim back and the ground was cleared off 1,000's of tall weeds. What's left is low growing weeds to be cleared by hand.

I was still going tonight until dark loading up the empty cans with Ivy from the back corner. I'll need about 100 cans to remove it all.

It's all I do is work.

I have no happiness or companionship from kind people who are 'normal'. I'd rather be alone but hey, it gets to me and I have to not think about current circumstances or I'll go insane.

    We really need to come up with something that will get that ivy out of the way. I'm fighting it too.
