worst job in garden

My pet hates are the same as nutcutlet's and sara's, collecting piles of weeds and taking them to the compost bin. OH complains I always leave the heaps right where he has to walk, and looking for tools deposited around the house. He has painted all the handles of mine a bright yellow so that I can see them from a mile away!

Just posted this to Gail Peacock:

We got rid of ours with glyphosate, double dosage!. First chopped it all down and after that sprayed/filled the hollow stalks and every little leaf that dared to show itself. Took two Spring/Summers but it has definitely disappeared and never came back. Good luck!

I can't help wondering if, when you hose the little blighters off, whether they don't just climb back up the nearest plant where they land and continue munching there?
