the 'weed free desert'

OK so here we go:

this is a comparison of green (and we don't go crazy with super 'golf course' grass growing) and the desert next door -- brown, baby diaper shit brown, sand colored ... whatever, the guy put in new sod last year and then...and then...hell, I dunno, he killed it somehow -- he's apparently, not a soup nazi, but a chemical-kill type
and then he sprayed (possibly at 3am?) along his fence line giving me some verra-sick zinnias ... a healthy garden looks more like this -- close-up
now...instead of these killer chemicals, the guy could just plant a ground cover along his property line like the folks on the other side of our house

well...we all make choices in life but I'm wondering what his chemicals are doing to my veggies ... ??

HI, I'm Doug, Lily's hubby.... I've glanced at your journal a few times and think you're a very intertesting person... I'd love to add you if you don't mind.... I asked Lily and she encouraged me to comment to you and ask. Lemme know if you're all right with it.

nice to meet you, Doug == just added you to my f/l -- so, yes, please add me -- and thanks for the nice comment :)

Chemicals aren't natural for plants, I think an overgrown garden is the most beautiful garden in the world!

Beautiful pics by the way!

thanks, you're very kind

and as far as the chemicals go ... yes, natural is definitely better
(but I do always feel a bit silly going to the store to buy bagged animal turds :) -- used to keep rabbits and a compost bin in NJ but don't have that ability here

Gah, I'm really sorry to see what's happened to the garden. I wonder if a liner would be of use in any way in that situation. Oh btw, come check this journal out - I'll be over there for a while.

..yeah, that's interesting 'cause in the area where there's a wooden fence and his stupid chemicals can't get through, everything's doing fine -- so I have thought about putting in some plastic or metal sheeting for next year to avoid these problems...but what a pain in the ass -- the other thought has been "just move the gardening area"

oh...by "come check this journal out", do you mean ohsheila? seems like you haven't been there in a couple of years

Yeah, I decided to stop using this journal for a while. I need a break from what I see and feel over there for a while. ohsheila seems like a good outlet for a while.

well, Sheliah, I'll try to keep track (is there an 'h'?)
i did that myownself as [Unknown LJ tag] for writing work but gave it up as a schitzoid break in the continuity :)

Looks like you have a 'cereal' killer next door.

yup, I think so
I keep finding cheerios along the fence, too
I spread a little milk, but the birds still shy away...


how 'bout the reds? think they're safe? or maybe the pinks?

Yeah? I notice you never brought up the yellows, Mr. Pickles...

never brought up the yellows...

..is that some kinda racist comment? heehaw

Re: never brought up the yellows...

Me ruv you rong time?

Hi! I added you back:) tx for adding me!

What is it with these people who just go insane with the chemicals all for a straight border on their lawn etc?. My neighbour does the same thing - two weeks ago she did it, so I won't mow again till it's degraded - (that infuriates her more) but organophosphates can be pretty deadly.

for a straight border

hello, hello

I don't have a clue -- and it's not even for borders, he killed his whole fuckin' lawn, (see the first pic) that he spent bucks sodding last Fall -- might have something to do with a mental disorder :) -- I dunno, people are weird, just look at them bombing and killing each other around the world
