480 Gallons of Weeds Enveloping the Yard


I should be studying at the moment but I can’t concentrate, not with mom babbling on the phone downstairs. Even if my door’s closed, I can still hear her.

The other thing is, my legs are itching like crazy and no matter what I put on it, it wouldn’t help. Last night, I put some Tiger Balm on it and this morning, it looked slightly better. I sat up in bed and brushed my finger against it and uh oh, I reactivated the itchiness.

This week, as I complained enough, I spent the afternoons on Monday and Tuesday at the rental property cleaning the backyard. Our tenant didn’t care that the grass in the backyard was a foot high or the fact that weeds had taken over the vegetable patch.

It took me two days just to clean up the vegetable patch. We accumulated sixteen 30-gallon bags of garbage. I got the pictures as well as the marks on my arms and legs to prove it.

These are the before and after pictures of the vegetable patch. I should’ve taken pictures on the first day but I forgot the camera. You can see three of the sixteen bag of weeds in the after-photo. It was madness. Vines, weeds, and dandelions enveloped the area.

Inside the patch

My mom’s kicking the tenant out next month. Why? He’s unappreciative, that’s why.

She complained that after all the hard work we did, not only did the tenant not say thank you but he wants to modify his lease from one-year to month-to-month. All because of what? All because he’s still pissed because mom didn’t notify him first before helping him to mow the lawn that’s why. He said we invaded his privacy and threatened to sue.

Have you seen a more ungrateful person in your life?

The least you can do is say thank you but instead, you used the law against us. Mom said, “At least I’m a tolerable woman, otherwise, I would kicked kicked him out this second.”

Uh, I don’t think constantly complaining to me is consider really tolerable. Anyway, I just want to show you the before and after pictures. You can click on each one to enlarge. This is before.

After…

So much better, right? And here’s the garbage.

Now if you’ll excuse me, have to go study. 🙂

  2. I’m an expert at itching. Wash your legs with Dawn (dishwashing detergent) the minute they start itching. It is the only soap that works. It will wash off toxins from plants or small bitey flies. Rinse the detergent with water as cool as you can tolerate. Also, I pop a Loratadine. It’s an over-the-counter allergy drug (can’t remember the brand name) that keeps the itching down.

    • I will have to try that. My itch kept me up last night. I had to get up at 2 am and put the ointment on my legs in order to sleep. I’ll bet something in that rich soil bit me that day when I was working in that garden.
