The War Has Begun In Watertown, WI

By
Real Estate Agent with Shorewest Realtors

Spring is here, the sun is out, and the grass needs to be cut. This is an amazing time in Watertown. A time to get out in the yard and make things come alive! One problem, though: dandelions! The scourge of all lawns across America!

When I saw the yellow heads of the enemy popping out from their camouflage bunkers I knew I had to act fast. The future of the whole lawn hung in the balance! Both of my immediate neighbors have fought this war in past years and have won. For some reason, the guerilla warfare in my country has never been stopped. I blame the traitor that still likes the little devils (my wife). She seems to think they are beautiful, and I think the word has spread to all dandelions throughout Watertown! For this reason, my castle is besieged by this pestilence.

This year, I have asked for a flood of reinforcements to once and for all conquer this age long battle. I started with a pre-season weed and feed to bomb the whole yard, praying this would keep them from gaining a beachhead on the lawn. However, I knew this would not stop all of them. Once I spotted the telltale of little saw-tooth flags starting to claim their territory, I knew I had to bring out the snipers. For 3 days now I have walked the lawn twice a day spraying each head that dared to rise in defiance to my law. It is truly a wonderful thing to see them shriveling by the next day.

They are a persistent foe, but I will overcome. The country of Lawn will once more be a land of peace and lush, green tranquility!

Hi James ~ I've been grumbling about how early dandelion patrol has started this year. It's a bumper crop.  Good luck with yours!
