Daily Crapbook: Pulling Ivy


The back yard is covered in ivy, and I'm engaged in the laborious process of pulling all of it up so I can plant a proper garden come springtime. The roots are surprisingly thick and gnarly, and sometimes I wonder if I'm yanking a tree root by mistake.

Ugh. I have to do this also. But it's better than kudzu. That stuff will really ruin your day.

This illustration of your struggle is great. You just keep pulling and pulling! Good luck with it.

Yes, I'm very relieved I don't have kudzu in my yard. What a nightmare! Thanks for the well wishing!
