A week ago I didn't have potting soil so I threw some dirt from my front yard in a few pots with some compost. This week every pot done this way had a few hundred grass blades coming up. My side yard is turned dirt waiting for the rest of the garden to be ready for planting. I, now, believe that the instant I add compost and water to those areas I will get grass everywhere.
What would you do?
I intended to transplant and start seeds this weekend.
I could let everyone duke it out.
I could solarize for 6 weeks (not really an option).
I could water this week. Hula hoe the grass next week. Bake it in the sun then plant. I am not convinced this will really change the outcome.
I could resign myself to weeding for the remainder of my awake hours.
Suggestions? Sympathy? Support? Sigh.
