While loading up my car for our vacation, the landscaper dude was at our apartment, weeding. So I took that opportunity to let him know about the devil claw plants that I attempting to grow. So he'll leave them alone... I hope.

As I was leaving for church I saw a landscape dude doing his thing at our apartment. I pointed out the two devil claw plants by the 'Peas' sign. He was going to bypass them but then I went to show him the plant behind the bush. Too late. It was already weeded. Grrrr....
