And you don't need to post in here whether you were successful or not, or any details of your finances. Many, many people need help once in a while, and you shouldn't beat yourself up over this. flick 100785

Ditto to the above.

I need to check out rec.gardens. I love gardening. So it sounds like a group I would get some good info from.

Another nice place is gardenweb.com. They have lots of helpful fora on all kinds of gardening and home topics. Want to meet a bunch of people who are just crazy about their front-loading washer? They're there. :-)

Whoa! I have a great front loading washer and I had no idea that there were others like me. Who would've thought that other front-loading-washer-fans would be hiding in gardenweb.com?

Haven't run into you there, I don't think. I mostly check Antique Roses, Cottage Gardening, Perennials, Mid-Atlantic and Virginia forums. Some of the funnest threads always appear in the Soil, Compost & Mulch forum, though. Those people are a hoot.

This is also a great way to chase an ant community over to your neighbour's yard.

There is great satisfaction to be derived from doing this to one's neighbor. Oh wait,..
Actually, I don't care for solarization for the reasons previously mentioned. Killing flora and fauna indiscriminantly should be a last resort, IMO.

Gosh,I use about 3 gallons a week from spring through fall. I hate poison ivy! And it really doesn't work well on the stuff.Works really good on grass though.

For most plants, it is most effective to apply the herbicide late summer into fall, as the plant is preparing for dormancy. If you've got poison ivy like I have poison ivy (the size of my arm, winding around trees), the best approach is to cut it, and paint the wound with concentrated RoundUp, straight out of the bottle. I've made a lot of progress that way.

Ok, I stand corrected. But he's unattended to. Still, my advice would be to trap him. Then roundup at will

I mostly lurk over in appliances when we're redoing another part of the house or staining clothing in new and fascinating ways.

For now, consider the cover-it-up (solarize) option, especially for areas like the back where it won't look so odd to the rest of the neighborhood if you just weight the cardboard and/or plastic with rocks.

Yea, now I understand why the grass didn't grow in the stones when I had a canopy over that area. :}
Actually, I'm interested in trying the boiling water thing again. I used the bottle of Eliminator on the front walkway and curb area, and had just enough to finish. I'll see tomorrow if it worked or not. I'm going to set water to boil all day tomorrow and keep going out and heaterizing the rest of the little suckers, see them sizzle... :}

I guess I am just going to live with the dandelions.

Salt works on dandelions. Hose down area with water and then pour salt directly from bag or box onto large base leaves of dandelion plant and within hours it is dead, root and all. Pull it from the ground and you are done. Won't grow back either. We get a lot of dandelions here in Nova Scotia and that is the only thing that has worked successfully for killing and keeping them from growing right back.
