A field is 40 acres. Farmer/Landowner chops out a parcel and sells it.
This is the tale of 500' of frontage shared tween corn n bean rotation and a little old lady.
Finally, convinced my mom that a yard is more fun with trees and shrubs than a dirt track for lawnmower, but
the die off of 20 or so lilac suckers (n cpl other things)began the day after the sprayer was there. Beans were already closing canopy, i don't think it was an herbicide.
These lilacs from this same yard are tough as nails but i suppose i should find a more resistance shrub.
Any ideas on what can take on or at least withstand drift-icide?
 
Eliminate 95% of the weeds in your lawn by mowing 3 inches or higher. Then plant tiny ads:
