    Grandpa's Weeder for pulling weeds, saves your back

    Since many full fusion patients have reported pulling weeds around here in the past, (Usually pelvis patients with the most expensive spines) I finally decided to look and see what products are out there and ordered this weed puller today. They run $40 ea. Grandpa invented it in 1913. I am guessing it was Grandpa from Hee Haw. (smiley face) It's an old school design.

    Russian thistle or tumbleweed is especially invasive....Glyphosate or Roundup does not work, and while using a weed burner at 2500 degrees, it takes 3-4 minutes to turn it from green to black which explains why fires don't kill this weed. It's hard to believe how impervious this plant is. You can't kill it so you have to pull it by the roots while its green. If it turns brown in the fall and starts rolling, it just laid down thousands of seeds...what a battle!
