Watch Out Poison Ivy!

Standard

It was the first week in August of 2008 that I launched by blog “Jejune Advice to All.”  I can’t believe it’s been almost two years!   My hope is that it has been mildly to very entertaining at times for each person who reads it.  Poking fun at myself (and everything else in the world) has been liberating.  And, as always, the world around me feeds great topics to blog about.  However, there is one blog entry that I would love to forget . . . my summer long battle with poison ivy! 

On the eve of summer 2010, I would like to celebrate my eventual win over the devious ivy (I may not have won the war, but I managed to not to pick a fight for the past two years).  In celebration, I would like to report that a solution to the growing need for poison ivy control has been discovered. GOATS!  That’s right, you can rent your very own herd of goats to clear brush and eat your poison ivy.  For those of you who need to rent a goat, I’m including a link to a great article from the Dirt Doctor with video on herds of plant destroying goats.  So if you want to get rid of weeds, poison oak, squirrels and your lawn, a herd of goats can’t be beat.

This may be old news to some of you, but for me it solidifies my decision to harbor a furry weed eating nanny in my backyard.  I can claim it’s a medical necessity.  I wonder if the City of Dallas would buy that?  I can’t wait!

Carpe Diem.
