Just Dandy













Dandelions are worthy adversaries. They grow like, uh, weeds, crowd out weaker plants with their predatory tentacles, and reproduce faster than the rabbits here at Watership Down II. I fail my "White Middle Class Suburban Man" brethren by refusing to baptize my lawn with regular chemical baths. Instead, I attempt to manually yank the dandelions up by hand a couple times a week. And I'm losing.

    I have resorted to chemical weapons in the War on Dandelions. I go on a weed offensive a couple of times a week, using a chemical cocktail comprised of MCPA, dimethylamine, Triclopyr, Triethylamine Dicamba, and dimethylamine.

    Incidentally, these ingredients can also be used to make one hell of a mojito.

    My compromise is to Weed-n-Feed spring and fall, then attack the holdouts an inch below ground with a pocketknife in between times. This leaves me with just enough weeds to retain my sense of virtue, if not any actual virtue.
