Gardening with AK -springing into action

Now that the winter is getting settled in moving on. It is time to think of the garden. At first glance the prospects are grim:
But the keen florealist is not put off and girds their lions, puts on the bamboo armour with wings and sallies forth.
The first task should be the lawn and this is where the family's help is needed. Little Timmy drives the mower whilst sister Rowena clears the path of any large pets or drunken relatives and father carefully supervises from the Train Station game on facebook (fecking Diner cars, how do they work).
Of course, since it is Spring time, some plants are feeling the sap rise and it worthwhile to go equipped so as to avoid this sort of catastrophe.
That really spoiled the Old Entomologist "Bladderworts are our special friends and favourite character from Robinson Crusoe" outing, I can tell you.
But of course not all gardening activity ends in screaming death, sometimes it is a slow gurgling noise
But in the end it is about a job well done and who knows what magical kingdoms may be uncovered by your work?

Fecking Pixie infestation, I shall get the Roundup.

There's not much in life worse than pixies.

I suggest you skip right to a serious solution, A.K. Agent Orange, or some such.

I think they like Agent Orange, Thunder.They say they get pixilated on it.

So, you're saying we're going to have to do something from orbit?

I agree, we need to be sure.

I'm glad you have Roundup there too. Keeps the global mutation rate even.
