    I just ordered a tool called the "Weed Twister". Hopefully it won't take too long too get here.

    smoke 'em!

    A little old lady down the street uses her husbands propane torch! :weld: --she just has to be careful not to point it at the stems on the flowers!!..Me,I dont grow flowers on purpose,but we have tiger lily's and daffodills growing wild,when they get "weedy" I just rip them out by hand!---my favorite part of the year is when I drive my riding mower right over them and mulch them up!--(made my mom cry the first time I did it!--but she couldn't believe how they grew back!--better than ever before!)..works for rosebushes too--I got sick of getting stabbed by the one near our front steps,so I chopped it flush with the ground--the next year it grew back twice as high! :crazy:

    There is no way I'm getting down on my hands and knees pulling weeds, oh hell no, not with my back, I'd never get back up, LOL. I'm happy too spend a whole $24.90 (that is including shipping) for the tool. [​IMG]

    lol, sorry man, didn't know you had back problems. I'm still young and flexible so I don't take things like that into consideration too often.

    Well, I planted a new rose bush today. Yellow climbing rose bush. It's suposta get up to 15 feet tall in a few years. Main goal is too increase resale value or atleast help the house sell quicker when the time comes.
