Sticky Ball Hell

My Saturday plans? Picking up these little sticky balls.

They’re from Sweet Gum Trees so officially they’re called Sweet Gum Balls. Yeah, not so sweet. They hurt!! Can’t see the spikes? Click on the photo to enlarge and you’ll see them.

This is just a small part of our front yard covered with them…from ONE tree! Multiply it by oh….at least 4 times. I’ve got 2 Sweet Gum Trees in the back yard. ~ sigh ~

Anyone want to help? šŸ˜€

  1. looks like you’re going to have a lot of cleaning up to do.. šŸ˜›

    • I know. There’s just no easy way to pick them up; they stick in rakes, they hurt your fingers even with gloves on. You have to handle them very gently and just pick them up by hand. Even the lawn mower doesn’t get all of them. lol I’m really not looking forward to it…kinda’ hoping for rain. šŸ˜€
