Weeds till and amend the soil.
They are nectar plants for our 6-legged friends.
Herbicides can harm kids
Or your friends’ kids
And that squirrel there
Wait, what is that? That thing
Poor flies 😢
Weeds piss off your obnoxious neighbors 😈
Some of them are pretty 🤗
Weeds are good. Good enough anyway. Kick back and enjoy your summer.
@Fritillaria2 Or "I like weeds, I just take care of the parts where they might grow through the fence onto neighbours' properties" ;)
@Anke If the spread by roots, yes, but... but... if their primary method of reproduction is seeds wafting high into the air, the effort is pointless.
@Anke “if THEY spread”
@feld Excellent! If it’s soft, it gets to stay in the lawn. That’s my rule.
@feld It's only drawback in my book is that the bees love it too much. For a few weeks, I have to do a double and triple check before sitting, lying down, walking, shifting, moving in any way across the lawn.
It doesn't stop me from enjoying it, but the results can be (and has been) *painful*. My lawn gets *used*, and my interests and the bees' interests can be at odds.
