Burmuda Grass, Fleas and Sin

Burmuda grass like sin grows up through the dark earth and wrecks a perfectly good garden. It's the "gift" that keeps on giving.  Because like sin and fleas, complete eradication of Bermuda grass is a lifetime avocation. In the hopes of making headway this year, I've started digging and pulling roots before my soil turns into rock hard clay.  The other choice is to smother the stuff with black plastic, burning the roots.  The bad news is, you get to look at black plastic all summer long.  It's just the way it goes....
