Roundup around little fruit trees
When I planted my trees I put newspaper, burlap, and then a one of those rings made out of old tires around them to stop grass. But of course the grass has runners and is just popping through all three layers. It took me hours in the hot sun to fix this all up around 10 little fruit trees - I worked hard - and it's very discouraging. If I spray roundup on the grass - is it going to kill my trees if I don't spray the trunks or leaves?
On another note, Nick and I were in Orlando last week and I was hoping I could count on the summer rains to help me out a bit. Not a freakin drop fell - but that didn't stop the weeds from trying to take over beds that were completely weed free when I left. I am very cranky. To top it off, all day long storm clouds have sailed past me and yet it hasn't rained. For heavens sake!!! REALLY??!!!
Okay - all done with the bad attitude. It doesn't pay off anyway it just makes you mess up and pull up your seedlings with the weeds. Hey - at least we had a terrific time and Nick and I will remember it forever. :)
