    The challenge of Kudzu

    Kudzo was planted in my state heavy also and has totally taken some low-lying swamps. Have never had to deal with it myself but as to spraying early, normally best results with any herbicide is spray while the weed whatever it is is small, tender and growing. Watch for temperature limits also...

    Real Estate Days on Market?

    I pray and hope our economy holds together and no serious recession and certainly no depression. Think inflation is going to be major issue for us. Debt of the US Government is not a positive at all and it is only growing. Somewhere something will trigger majorly with the US Debt. We may...
