Remember when I said Carloz's yard was prettier than mine?
Here's the proof. This is my yard this morning before Little Moo gets to work on it. Yep, those weeds are bigger than she is. It looks like there may be wheat growing in this lot. Maybe I'll ask Moo to harvest that first. Who knows, there may just might be enough for an English muffin (which no one eats in England, btw. NO ONE).


Record rains this year, together with California regulators who advised us to let our lawns die due to the drought have led to this. In December the yard was a model of water convservation: nothing but dirt. Now after 2 months of heavy rainfall it has become the Planet of the Weeds!


Some of the weeds have spiky little thorns. Should I have Moo wear a sweater or something?
