When we go for walks around the neighborhood, I have to restrain her. If I don't, she will not hesitate to enter other people's yards and start pulling weeds.

I also never go out without gloves on. There's always a weed (or many) that can get pulled on my way to or from the barn, garden, mailbox or wherever. I even weed in the winter, weather permitting. I figure every one I get before spring is one less to get going when the weather warms.
Weeding is an every day thing and I still haven't kept ahead of them.
I'm glad to know there are other compulsive weeders out there

I have been out in February before pulling those weeds that have the nerve to come up early. I think of it as one less to pull later.

I like weeding because usually you are out there by yourself and its quite. Noone comes out to help because they are afraid you will put them to work, or worse yet think up another garden project.

DH has names for my weeds. Snow on the Mountain (Euphorbia marginata) is a glorified weed and Cleome is a double glorified weed. All of my plants are glorified weeds as far as DH is concerned.

I have gone to other peoples houses and pulled weeds in their gardens, it has to be a really good friend or a close relative in order to get away with this behavior.

I find weed pulling relaxing, I have made it into a business, I do garden maintainance for other people so I get paid for doing something I like to do anyway.
