  • I heard someone lamenting their crabgrass the other day; they were convinced that this was the worst year ever.  Maybe so, but usually by this time crabgrass rears its ugly head and begins to creep through our fescue lawns, sneak into our cultivated beds and, when we’re not looking, reseed its self to ensure the continuation of the species.

    Sounds a bit sinister for a grass, I suppose, but it sure is difficult to control.

  • It seems that once again we, meaning the collective gardening public, have disregarded the imperative known as diversity… It applies to the plant world, too.

    Before I get into the specifics of one current problem (and there are more than one) let me reflect on our past mistakes when biodiversity has been ignored.

  • You know all the jokes about people having bumper crops of summer squash?
