WATCH: Weed-eating goats are released in NYC's Riverside Park to curb invasive plants

We all love a beautiful garden, but sometimes it can be stressful to keep up with the trimming and grooming. New York City has found a solution for those irritating weeds...

We couldn't think of a better way of overcoming this week than by talking about something that is both random and a bit weird, or maybe crazy. We're not sure how you will take it, but we are hoping that it will put a smile on your face and just take your mind off all that has happened online this week. 

It's no secret we love sitting in our garden, the outdoors brings a sense of calm and relaxation. It could be the greenery and the beauty that comes with all things in nature, whatever it is, we have got to say that we love being a part of nature. 

A funny and effective method of grooming the park in New York City has been implemented. This method may seem weird to us, but it basically is what happens in many communities that host goats and cows in KZN. 

According to a source, "Two dozen goats were brought into New York City’s Riverside Park on Wednesday to help curb the spread of invasive plants. The goats returned after a one-year hiatus due to Covid and will stay in the park until August."

We have to say that when we read the headline, "Two dozen weed-eating goats were set loose in NYC's Riverside Park to help curb the spread of invasive plants" - we were quite taken aback...

At first glance, we thought that "weed-eating goats" referred to a different type of green plant...

We are glad that we were not the only ones. It seems that when it comes to wording, sometimes things can be misinterpreted, whether you plan for it or not...
