I'm not an environazi, hippie, tree-hugger, but I'm not one of those people who would use chemicals to kill weeds either. That 1950s mentality has caused many medical issues for many people over the last several decades. I'm more of a live and let live kind of person. Also I like to keep it real and natural.

THE ONLY GOOD WEED IS A DEAD WEED! That's not exactly a slogan I believe in, but I figured I'd throw that one out there. I like your REAL AND NATURAL attitude Cactus Jack and I agree it's best not to be an extremist of any kind. As for weeds, we wouldn't be here without them.

Someone else wrote that she can tell the difference between a wildflower and a weed and that the difference has to do with the attractiveness of the flower. To that I say fair enough, but I would add that all plants are beautiful in their own way. Which doesn't mean that we should just allow things to grow indiscriminantly, but that we should appreciate the beauty that Mother Nature provides for us.
