I've got a small zucchini plant doing it's best to survive from fall, through winter, and now spring. I'm willing to give it a chance at a good warm season but this darn dandelion grew right underneath it.
Do you think I can get the weed out without killing the zuke? Let's see...
Gingerly, I put my trowel between the two plants. I wiggle it back and forth a bit to get down to the roots and pull up on the weed.
Now, let's see if this poor little plant can survive the shock and produce some good fruit for us. Like they say, what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger.
