My weeds have been teaching me some things. A few days ago while I was out doing battle in my garden, I noticed that some of the weeds have very strong and deep roots, which makes them a little harder to pull, giving them a great advantage. Others had roots that were not so deep, but very fragile. This type was easy to pull, but would reappear from the broken root fragments only a few days later, giving them the advantage. Either way, weeds seem to have adapted to the particular package that they have. Whether your roots are deep or shallow, find a way to make the best of the package you have. Create the advantage!

Interesting thought! I love my garden, because I stop everything and really think while I’m out there. I wrote about gardening and roots just yesterday at Macromoments, my “other” blog.
Weeds have roots, too, and they usually take longer to remove, once they get a good hold on the soil.
