March 28th Weed Appreciation Day

Boy, you think you are not appreciated!?! Try being a weed! Everybody tries to get rid of their weeds. We spray them, chop them out and curse them but they always seem to come back. At least they are determined.

Imagine going through life never being wanted, cared for or even admired. I actually wonder how many of us can relate to being a weed. I know there certainly are times when I feel like one.

Of course, when you get down you can always turn to weed to get you in a good mood. Well, not actually a good mood but a mood that you don’t care about what your mood is. Now I know many will disagree, but to me, this is the worst weed of them all. I use to be in a band centuries ago. There were 12 of us and I am the only one still alive, the rest all having passed either directly, or indirectly, due to this weed. If you are in pain, okay, if not realize that you are opening the door to real heartache.

However, other weeds are just like the plants we want to grow. They provide oxygen, eat up carbon dioxide and provide shelter for animals.

And there are actually some weeds that are good. Broadleaf Plantain, Chickweeds, lamb’s quarter, white clover and dandelions are actually good weeds! They protect soil, fertilize soil, condition soil and draw beneficial insects.

How to celebrate – Go outside and appreciate your weeds for a change. take a weed to lunch and show them a good time! Tell your neighbors why you have good weeds in your yard… spreading to their yard.
