Oh The Wonderful Things I Learned This Week.

A couple of really cool gardening things I learned this week were:

1.If you pour boiling water over the weeds in your rock work, patio, or stone path...
they turn black shrivel up and die.

If you try this with the weeds in your lawn however you will end up with a large circle of dead grass in your yard :)

2. I learned how to plant strawberry runners. (Hopefully they will root successfully).
Notice my frugal planting containers :)

The random lessons of the week are:

3. My daughter can eat a banana faster than my son.
4. It was well worth the $5.44 to buy this kids golf set for Hudson.
5. There's nothing like a Popsicle after a hot round of golf.
To read what other people have learned head on over to Musings of a Housewife

Oh sweet pictures!! And good luck on your strawberries! You know "sometimes" the cheap toys are the ones most played with! That is until they break because they were cheap! LOL

Cute...we just bought those same popsicles. My son loves his golf clubs too.

We have very similar golf clubs here in Ireland.

But here in Ireland, we call Popsicles ice lollies.

Hope those strawberries take off! I would love to try my hand at them sometime, but I remember my mom trying to grow some for several years and never being successful. Maybe your venture will inspire me for next year!
