    1st mistake: I let hubby help me in the garden.
    2nd mistake: I did not keep an eye on him when he did it.

    :flame: The man TOTTALLY destroyed my strawberry rows!!! They were going into the second year next year and I had already dug up the old bed so I have no replacements.:mad:

    He can't understand why I am mad.

    So he's in the dog house for now LOL Perhaps I should sic jack on him.

    Sounds like he went crazy with the rototiller. Am I right?!

    Well, apparently first he weed eated it all down then tilled it in, by hand :( I guess he saw me working so hard on taming the raspberries today that he thought he should do something too. I shudder to think of what would happen to my garden if he had access to a tiller LOL

    Wow, he really worked at destroying those berries! :eek:

    I had guessed "rototiller" because it seems even men who ordinarily don't like gardening are more than happy to run the tiller! :rolleyes:

    There are some impaired people who literally cannot tell a producing plant from a weed.

    They should not be allowed in gardens.

    Anytime my wife wants help in the garden I mess something up. Same goes for laundry.

    Don't be mad at him, he was working hard to help. Been there to.
    Hubby and a son.
    Son Seth at 14 decided he would till the garden for us, there went my herb bed on the side. I just told him, what a great job. Even though I was crying on the inside.
