    I think I heard that if you treat any plant above ground you can kill it and reduce the suckers. You know, you apply the herbicide with a paintbrush, like a child's water color kit type, to the leaves and it will soak it down into the plant. Now, I'm GLAD that my burning bush died! I have enough things to kill at my place, burdock, thistles and bindweed.

    Hahahahahahah so true! Especially when you've put in effort to create compost, it is such a rewarding smell.

    The big garden on the other side of my house is FULL of bind weed and jimson weed and Johnson grass. I think I can watch them grow if I stand still long enough. Grrrr

    The director of the extension office here in New Albany said we shouldve used a pre emergent early in the season before planting.

    My mom "rescued" the succulents for me and The first one is getting ready to bloom. The chicken is always follow me around in the yard. Also apparently I get so excited about posting pictures that I post them more than once.

    Welcome Nenebynature, your chickens are so pretty. Loved the pictures. I am the rare creature that doesn't have any weeds. Sometimes I get jealous of you all. ;)
