A new summer reality show premiered this week, but not on television. It's at Groundhog Hill. I call it, "Man vs. Weeds."
The premise is simple yet complex: One man, clad in bib overalls and armed with a garden hoe, competes against a ferocious team of weeds for planting supremacy and personal glory. The weed team consists of four players: Johnson Grass (team captain), Cape Honeysuckle, Climbing Milkweed and something I like to call, Pain-in-the-Butt-Ivy (see photo).
