Weeding, just like the parable says

I did a bit of weeding in the driveway today. It's the weeding I do when I'm feeling lazy, because anything that sprouts in the gravel has shallow roots and pulls up much easier than similar weeds growing in good soil. I was reflecting on the nature of the plants growing in the gravel, and it all seemed strangely familiar -- like I had read about this a long time ago. I finally realized why it seemed so familiar. Agrarian bible references: the chief benefit of the Catholic-school education.

I'm a little proud of my memory; I actually remembered the parable of the sower was in Mark 4....
