I finally got about 3/4 of those f-ing weeds pulled. I'm talking about tumbleweeds before they dry out, thick and rooted curs. You can just wait until they dry out and blow away. Then the ground is clear. But too much crap collects in the weeds, blown down the street from the wind and looking for a place to catch. I had the rake, hoe, branch cutters out. A couple of gray-headed drifters passed the front wall. One of them grabbed my branch cutter as they rolled past. I chased him down, they were apologetic and returned the item. I had to insult the guy by letting him know there were some cans and a broken CD player in the lot across the street, so maybe he should check there.
