I went outside to water the garden, and on a whim I tugged at one of the many grassy stalks invading the place. Then I couldn't stop. I just kept grabbing and tugging and throwing the vines away. Turns out maybe my garden is dying because I never weed it? Poor little tomatoes were all choked up in weeds. Now I am once again adorned by seventy-two mosquito bites.
