The battle of the maple tree

Well, I believe I may have won the battle of the maple tree. But they did not go without a fight. My poor fingers did not fare well in said battle and will probably not be gardening again for a few days at least. I was excited to use some of our economic stimulus money to buy some nice annuals and a couple hydrangeas to plant in the front, once we pull up the eyesore junipers. But, that will be another day...

Always to get those babies as soon as they sprout. The neighbors have a healthy 50+ yr old Elm tree, and my patio and garden are covered with little seeds that sprout as soon as they can. I must pull up about 10 babies a day..IF I get them before they're too big. A shovel sometimes can get them too.
