How to grow weeds

Leaving Raleigh for the summer provides some interesting opportunities to see how weeds grow if you give them enough encouragement.

First, take some normal crabgrass.

Then, let it grow in the nice North Carolina sunshine all summer long, with decent rain to help. The dog is just for perspective.

But any sissy can grow 3 foot crabgrass. Instead, find some super weed that looks a bit like corn, let it grow around your fountain, which has full sun and irrigation. Now we're talking weeds!

I was going to spray the weeds with Roundup, but the bottle of weed killer was frightened and went off and hid. I did keep an eye on the weeds to make sure they didn't take Jasper.
