I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I do love the pretty little pops of blue all summer, but I've had enough! I have dug up- by hand- 5 garden beds within the past year... mostly because I have been discouraged by the sheer amount of Asiatic Dayflowers in the garden bed that came with the house. I have visions for this bed, and while it could be easy enough to eradicate the undesirables with chemicals, I'm trying my best to steer clear of those types of products. Have a look:
See that area in between the porch and the sidewalk? FILLED with those little boogers!
A closer look at my arch nemesis.
Please, please, PLEASE ignore all the clutter.
All the tiny little seedlings are popping up left and right at this point, and I do NOT want them going to seed this year. Should I keep pulling away? Should I boil a whole bunch of water and toss is out there? Should I solarize them or smother them out? I'm used to trying to make things thrive, not killing them! Any input is greatly appreciated!
