Real Estate by Debbie Reynolds: Serendipity Sundays- Thistle Invasion

Serendipity Sundays- Thistle Invasion

Serendipity Sundays- Thistles Everywhere

This has been a crazy spring. The grass is greening and the flowers are pushing through though the dips down to freezing temps are stunning some of the color in Clarksville. What seems to prevail are the weeds. The dandelions have been very colorful and where there is a dandelion there will soon be a thistle.



I remember these from my youth. We would pick them in bouquets and blow on them to scatter the seeds in the air. This field must have had lots of blowing going on and glad it is not in my yard. My husband would be having a fit and would be administering weed and feed. and doing a lot of fretting.

I learned many years ago from our local farmer's co-op that the best defense against dandelions is a thick carpet of grass. Planting more grass will actually choke out the weed leaving a beautiful lawn. This lawn needs a lot of grass planted to rid it of these thistles.

Thanks for the tip Debbie Reynolds . I'm at a point where I may till most of my yard and re-seed because it's such a mess.

Your post reminded me of the dandelions we saw in Juneau, Alaska.  They were huge and lent a look to the landscape.  A

Your post and picture brought back many memories, Debbie. I remember picking thistles and blowing on them, as well.

This is timely advice to share as home owner work on their spring lawns.

Good afternoon Debbie - I certainly would not welcome that sight.  I love a thick green lawn but never seem to get it where I want it.

I am hoping I will get the grass thick enough to avoid dandelions.  Working at crabgrass at the moment :)

Happy Spring.
