为阻止杂草生长,日本男孩猛踩地面3个月

In what can only be described as an intriguing childhood experiment, a Japanese boy has been trying to stop weeds from growing in his backyard – without using chemical weedkillers – for the last three years. This year, he’s off to a promising starts.

这一切只能说是一场有趣的童年实验:在过去的三年里,一个日本男孩一直在试图阻止杂草在自家后院生长,而限制条件是不使用化学除草剂。而在今年,他的开局令人感到鼓舞。

It all started three years ago, when Twiter user @peco3575’s son finished elementary school and decided to conduct a “study” on weed annihilation solutions that didn’t involve the use of herbicides. He was inspired by his personal desire to clean his home backyard of weeds, because that summer they had grown so tall that he actually couldn’t play there anymore. He then started coming up with strategies to combat the weeds, write them down, apply them to his backyard, and note the conclusion. For the past three years, his ideas all failed, but 2020 is off to a surprisingly good start.

这一切都始于三年前,当时日推用户@ peco3575的儿子读完了小学,并决定对不涉及除草剂的杂草歼灭方案展开一项“研究”。他的灵感起源于对清理自家后院杂草的个人渴望,因为那年夏天杂草长得很高,以至于他当时无法在那里玩耍。

他随后开始制定与杂草作战的策略,并将其写下后在自家后院进行实践,最后再记录结果。虽然在过去的三年中,他的想法全部都以失败告终,但是2020年的开局却出奇地顺利。

@peco3575 recently took to social media to report her son’s recent success. After years of failures in his attempt to stop weeds from invading the backyard, he seems to have finally found a solution – running in the backyard every day. He started in January and has been doing it daily for the past three months; so far, no weeds have sprung up from the ground.

@ peco3575最近在社交媒体上报告了儿子最近取得的成功。在阻止杂草入侵后院多年却总是失败之后,他似乎终于找到了一个解决方案:每天在后院跑步。他从1月开始跑起,并在过去三个月里每天都在跑。到目前为止,还没有杂草从地上长出。

Previously, the boy tried covering the backyard to see if weeds would grow without direct sunlight – they did – sprinkling the invading plants with saline solution and even pure salt, or planting other plants that were eventually overwhelmed by the weeds. Nothing seemed able to stop this force of nature, but last year @peco3575 and her son started paying attention to a different aspect – the hardness of the soil

在此之前,该男孩曾试图遮盖后院,想看看杂草是否可以在没有阳光直射的情况下生长:答案是可以。此后他又向这些入侵植物撒上盐溶液甚至纯盐,或是种植其他植物,但最终还是被杂草淹没了。

如此看来,似乎没有什么办法能够阻止这种自然力量,可在去年,@ peco3575和她的儿子开始关注另一方面:土壤的硬度。

The idea behind the boy’s latest strategy is that if the ground is hard enough, the weeds can’t break through. So ever since the start of January he has been going out into the backyard every day and running for about 30 minutes to compact the soil. So far, it seems to be working, as weeds are yet to appear on the half of the backyard that he has been running on, whereas they have already covered the other half.

这个男孩最新策略背后的理念是:如果地面足够硬,杂草就无法破土而出。因此,自1月初以来,他每天都会跑去后院,并奔跑大约30分钟以压实土壤。到目前为止,这一招似乎行之有效,因为杂草尚未出现在他一直奔跑的那一半后院区域,而另一半区域已被杂草覆盖。

“From January 5th to March 1st, no mater if it rained or if it was windy, he continued to run” a proud @peco3575 wrote on Twitter.

为之骄傲的@ peco3575在推特上写道:“从1月5日到3月1日,无论下雨还是刮风,他都在持续奔跑”。
