Yay! Neighbors pulled thistles

Last week, I wrote about one of my neighbors with thistles in his yard and how pulling them in my yard does not seem like much help unless others pitch in.

After I paid a visit to the owners of the thistles, they went out and pulled and sprayed. Now our yards are politically correct.

I am still wondering what the laws about controlling noxious weeds are. There are quite a few vacant lots covered with noxious weeds, such as the lot between the Dillon movie theater and the highway.

I’ve been talking to a few people this week about controlling these invading weeds. About half really don’t give a darn. So, I guess that’s life here in the Summit, where the quality of life and the great outdoors rules.
