Re: In the garden and out

I swear redbuds and walnuts grow the longest taproots and if you don't
get them out of the ground while they are still small (like a few inches
or so tall) then you end up digging them out instead of pulling them.
And if you're fool enough to leave them alone and let them grow for a
year...ugh! You'll be digging forever to get them out!

You could call it that. You don't want to let them hang around inot
the<br>next year cuz then they're harder to pull.<br>Kitty<br>-----
