that. This result happened in only one day. I brushed Roundup on some liriope volunteers over two weeks ago and they're just now puny and can be easily pulled out of the ground, but none are truly DEAD like in this photo. Will this be safe, do you think, if I put it on liriope volunteers and other weeds in my front yard? The yard has tree mulch, no grass, but lots of hostas, some hellebores, ferns, azaleas and other things. Guess I'd need to spray directly onto the potential victims, or brush it on with a sponge brush?

will have to try this myself, since we are in the same planting zone. thanks for sharing.
A possom walked so close to me so at first I was afraid. It looked at me, I looked at it and slowly it went away. Is there a anything I should know about this animal/rodent? What does it hurt/destroy? Should I call animal control?

my niece is wet-nursing a pair of babies... mother was zapped by a speeding neighbor... good
learning experience (even giving kisses and wiping their faces after feeding) for my great nephew...
I've also started plants indoors using my new seed germination mat and grow lights. Seems that the plants started by winter sowing outdoors is doing just as good as the ones I have in the house that I've been babying.

I planted nicotina in small cups that I have gradually moved up in size... with weather
turning colder gives me a project to do inside this afternoon... move up to the next size cup (and last, I hope) which will be a gallon container. Santa brought me some lily bulbs and hollyhocks which are breaking soil, so they will be ready to go in the ground in 4 weeks. Keeps me out of trouble during days too cold to go out.
It's cracking around the edges of the tile in the kitchen and bath.

the manufacturers inability to make a caulking product that doesn't have to be dug out and
replaced every 6 to 9 months continues to drive me crazy... common response by renovators, painters, etc... "settling issues." I now use an old fashion product (and sometimes hard to find) called "rope putty" to fill in the gaps as deep as possible with any type of thin object I can and then apply a thin layer of the caulk. The rope putty stays soft, and is easy to paint.
Fellow Hometalker Erica Glasener and I visited a new nursery together today and inevitably brought back a few plants. I bought a cardoon, which will grow into a large, spiky, distinctive
plant. I'll put it by the street and I'm sure my neighbors will ask what it is.
My question is this: What are some interesting ideas for a label?
I'm not fond of plastic or wooden stakes.....so what have you used that worked well?

About your cardoon -- do you plan on removing the flowers before the birds spread the seeds
throughout the neighborhood? I also saw some interesting recipes on how to cook the stalks... did you purchase this type? Keep us updated on this plant later in the year... I'm always trying new plants to figure out if they work or not.
