Re: guy topics< duct tape

I can identify.My DH is a "lawn/hardscape/pond maintenance" guy - I do the rest. Despite my marking plantings with red flags, I still lose several a year (the latest a marked trumpet vine, felled to his weed wacker). When I asked him about it, he said he hadn't noticed it, but called my attention to the three seedling American Hazelnuts (also marked and quite a bit smaller than the vine) that he had spared!

<chuckle> I have some "honey do" jobs that don't get done, and I have a
husband. And then on those occasions when he does try to "help" with

buried... he's of the "if it's not blooming it's a weed" mindset, whether
the plant's in a garden bed or not. And if I haven't managed to weed a bed
for a while, look out! I do the best I can with the time I have...
challenges build character, right?
