The weed-eater has made it’s mark

August 22, 2016

“What are some of the noticeable changes you have seen in your sixty years of living on Stinking Creek?” There are so many but at this time of the year, I think so quickly of the weed-eater. This has certainly changed the complexion of so many of our homes.


We have so many weeds, grasses and vines that grow so tall; it was a bit overwhelming by the middle of August. Houses and whole farms can disappear behind a “forest” of horse-weeds, stick weeds, poke and many others. Each of these weeds can easily grow up to ten or more feet high. Then drape them with beautiful morning glories or other vines and you have a wilderness. Then add some poison ivy and blackberry vines to complicate the picture.
