After an empowering afternoon of watching Wonder Woman, I faced the ever-present task of weeding my plot. No amount of posturing, sly moves and fierce looks can overpower the destructive power of unwanted plants. They thrive, no matter how many times they are pulled out and eradicated.
Despite my lack of super powers and fabulous hair, I need to face my nemesis. Yes, it is always nice to have a maintained garden plot and to curtail flowers that develop seeds, but if our selected plants are going to succeed, they need the opportunities to gain water and nourishment from the soil. If weeds are left unchecked, they grow taller and surpass plants such as carrots and kale.
