In Seattle according to this link you can rent a goat for $25 per week. The goats are tether-trained and all you have to do is move said goats around your weedy yard and give them water. Free fertilizer!! Also known as organic weed control.
Smokey is a real force to be reckoned with. Yes, he is as small as he looks. Okay again yes, he still sucks from his mama. You just wait. He's eyeing those bad weeds right now.
