      • If you do plant some, plant them in your shady places behind the house
        Keep on weeding often, seeds will grow any were

      • that’s exactly where i was thinking, it is rough spot and gets a lot of shade they way the sun goes around the house. i really can’t use it for veggie garden stuff with light, maybe carrots but i doubt it, soil would need adjusted.
