The Offensive Begins

Every winter weighs heavy upon this Knight's backyard. Only this winter has been extra harsh. The beautiful and hardy Sir Walter Buffalo has been overcome by weeds. The lawn's future is bleak.

To most, the hope of a beautiful late spring lawn would be lost....

... but not to this Knight!

Because this Knight knows that as soon as you rid the lawn of the weeds - it will thrive and return to its former splendor.

The Call to Arms.

So this morning SirKnight took up arms and declared war on the weeds.


It was no good sending the children into battle. They don't understand that there is a better lawn to be had.

It was no good sending in MrsKnight, she is too busy maintaining the household.

No - fighting the weeds is a man's job. And not one that real men run away from.

The Enemy

This Knight was amazed by the various types of weeds it became necessary to fight.

Some weeds take centre lawn and had spread themselves wide to openly steal sunlight from the Sir Walter.

Other weeds were more stealthy - blending in with grass, all the while supplanting the root system and laying claim to the valuable ground nutrients.


Some weeds would find root on the edges, but would work their rot into the main lawn at each and every opportunity.


This Knight attacked the weeds indescriminately, with barehands and simple gardening tools.

Then came the bindi weeds. Fortified. Impenitriable. Hazardous. Completely and utterly destructive to the lawn.


There was no mucking around with the bindies. Out came the Roundup.

It wasn't an easy morning and there is still much more work to do. However, it is a battle this Knight will win!

The lawn will be restored to its former glory!!

Mmh, this is deep, this real stealth writing and i can say from this that..

The outcome of your life is totally your responsibility

The tending of the garden just as God told Adam to do in Eden is our responsibility, no one else. So sulking, blaming and complaining about the weeds won't do us any good.

It is up to us to get the weeds out which comes in various sizes and depth, we need to understand and employ the skill most necessary for a kind of weed(challenge).

After all is done, our garden(our lives) can now actually thrive. God bless you @sirknight

Explanation of the parable of the weed. Matthew 36-40

36 Once he said goodbye to the crowd, he entered the house. His disciples came to him and asked him:

-Explícanos the parable of the weeds of the field.

37 "The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of man," Jesus replied. 38 The field is the world, and the good seed represents the children of the kingdom. The weeds are the children of the evil one, 39 and the enemy that sows it is the devil. The harvest is the end of the world, and the reapers are the angels.

40 "As the weeds are gathered and burned in the fire, so will the end of the world. 41 The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will wrest from their kingdom all those who sin and make them sin. 42 They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then the righteous will shine in the kingdom of their Father as the sun. He who has ears, let him hear.

God bless you greatly

Greetings Sir.

This is really deep, that why I love reading your post sir, someone have to think like a man before understanding what it really means.

fighting the weeds is a man's job not for boys and am very sure you will win this battle sir.

Definitely the lawn will be restored to its former glory..

Well done sir.


Deeper than just garden weeds you reckon Dwayne - you could be right. 😉

Separate the weed from the green and beautiful grass is a job that should only be done manually and delicately, trying to set aside what really is not necessary and the result was a beautiful garden, worked with sweat and a lot of prowess. Sirknight Blessings, your work is with you always in all kinds of settings, where you develop.

hahaha, you will be victorious in this battle against the tares. Days ago I designed a tool for farms to eliminate the entire layer of vegetables to plant. if you want to give it a view, it contains a short video. you will laugh at his name.

Excellent Knight SK, identifying the weed is a deep identity of God, and knowing how to classify it for its abundance and permanence of good grass is revealing.
This type of work obviously our God dignifies.

This really wonderful publication reminds me of a beautiful verse where Jesus speaks: "The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. 25 But while they were all asleep, their enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. 26 When the wheat sprouted and the ear was formed, the weeds also appeared. 27 The servants went to the owner and said, "Lord, did you not sow good seed in your field? So, where did the weed come from? "28" This is the work of an enemy, "he replied. The servants asked him: "Do you want us to tear it away?" 29 "No! -He answered them-, lest, when they tear the weeds, they tear the wheat with it. 30 Let them grow together until the harvest. Then I will say to the reapers, First pick up the weed, and bind it in bundles to burn it; then pick up the wheat and keep it in my barn "».


Wow, your insight is deep @marcelo182. The great @sirknight is a great gardener. God bless him.

Oh, gentleman! It is a tough day to fight against the grass of weeds, weeding the roots is better with our manufacturing industry: hands. The glory of green pastures will return, after cleaning. regards


hello, I'm new to steemchurch Venezuela, could you help me how to get here? and win a positive vote?


Everyone is welcome, start posting and interacting in the community and soon your talent will be seen and rewarded. Greetings miller

Hahaha, guess the battle is worth fighting else they might invade the whole country of your surroundings, more strength to those who went to the battle


It is an arduous task to remove the weeds without damaging the good ones, but a deep cleaning SK always brings good results.

Good job

One sure thing is that as long as there is willingness in the heart of the Knight and the hand of the Knight is in the readiness of removing the weeds; the glory of the lawn will be surely restored. The porter's hands never leaves a broken pot the same, there is always a new finishing.

Do have a splendid day @Sirknight.

This publication is full of much teaching if we analyze it, @sirknight I am sure that it will achieve its goal with dedication and enthusiasm and with the clear objective, blessings.

Great Journey dear SK. very considerate with your Lady! really the weeds are hard to start!

I love your post friend, are you the pastor of this steemchurch church? I would like to know how I can integrate more? I love your post, you can see that you have a lot of ingenuity and take great care of your home and your garden. could you see my post?

I totally agree with you, fighting weed is indeed a real man's job. Weldone SK

Amazing how such a wonderful post was drafted out from just weeding the lawn😅.
No doubts you remain legendary 🏅💯

Thanks TH. There was another guy who spoke of weeds and seeds wasn't there Brother?


Oh yes sir, The parable of the weeds and the mustard seeds by our Lord Jesus! Matthew 13:24-43

@Sirknight the great..Nice post you got. Happy Sunday


This shows that the Knight is not lazy and that the church is in good hands.

All I have to say is...good luck with that

Ornamental plants are such plants that helps our compound to be beautified, God loves cleanliness. Thanks mentor for this wonderful post

The lawn sure must return to its former glory. More grease to your elbow as you find green pastures from weeds and grass. #smiles

You have a minor misspelling in the following sentence:

Completly and utterly destructive to the lawn.
It should be completely instead of completly.
