Why is it called "monkey grass"?
And why do I work so hard to cultivate a beautiful green lawn only to be at the mercy of the drought or weeds that apparently think "weed and feed" means "feed the weeds"! I baby it...mow it with the blade on the proper setting....feed it those little power pellets that cost more than my anniversary dinner - and for what?
But monkey grass??? Pay it no attention and it thrives. And now, because I've left it to itself for a couple of months - it has gone wild and taken over my patio....like a bunch of wild monkeys! Only not as cute.
So - I'm off to give my little monkeys a hair cut!! I guess it's just the week for hair cuts!
