This morning I pulled some weeds.
Then green-headed ants swarmed all over the weeds.
As usual whenever I work in the garden, one got inside my glove and bit me.
So I stopped until the throbbing pain faded.
The ants were still swarming after 10 minutes, so I moved to another area.
Twenty minutes of work, and I had filled another bag.
But the progress was so slow while constantly stopping to stuff bits in the bag, that I didn’t bother fetching another. I just went for it, to see how much I could get done before I got bitten or tired.
After an hour, I’d taken a good bite out of the greenery.
Still a lot left to go. I got a quote a few months ago to get all the vines removed, but it was way more than I’d expected. I’ll see if I can get a cheaper quote once I remove all the vines that I’m able to reach.
After a drink, I returned to balancing on top of the rocks in the hot sun.
Got another good chunk removed before my partner got home and it was time to stop.
I had a look, and the vines thin out a bit to the left, so hopefully that’ll go faster.
I poisoned the rightmost vine with a drill and undiluted roundup. Drilled about 15 holes.
It’s good to see the fence again.
