Generally it is a pleasant experience being on a gardening team. I know Daisy would back me up on this concept. But there are times when disagreements can arise—specifically, what plants need to be eradicated, and which are left to survive—what’s a weed and what’s not. You have heard the saying that it is easier to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission. I have found that this axiom doesn’t work well when weeding in the garden. You see, once a plant is extracted, survival upon replacement is seldom successful. I have found that saying “You should have been watching what I was doing!” does not go over well. Or “It looked like a weed to me” doesn’t fare well either. I have found that frequent asking of permission has proven to the least painful option when weeding. I’m just sayin’.
