Taking Over

It's been so long since the guys have been here to work that morning glory has taken over the entire backyard. We didn't plant it, we don't water it and damned if we know where it came from. And yet it thrives, and thrives and thrives. I have to fight to keep it out of the back vegetable patch and that's about all I have the energy to do with it.

Why can't my pepper plants be such enthusiastic growers?


  1. Maybe its been there awhile and the roots are established and the pepper plants are new. I have some newer (this year) morning glories in my back yard in Ohio and they don't grow so well. Plus, deers are always eating them.

  2. I WISH my morning glories would do this and cover my ugly chain link fence! Maybe I shouldn't worry, maybe a watched morning glory never grows?
