ticks, for sure

crabgrass drives me crazy, so that too.

dog-poop? Hilarious!

No, the other thing that drives me crazy is unwanted tree seedlings. Doesn't matter if it's pine, sweetgum, crape myrtle or bradford pear, I hates them! (happily, kudzu isn't on or near my lot, or I'd have had to say that)

No kudzu here either, thankfully. I do have wild grape vine. It has it's pros and cons but definitely an invasive here. Thumbs down

I think a choice of three is too short but I dont want to be a spoil-sport so I need to trade Dandilion for whatever this weed is.
