This has Nothing to do with ANything but…

This is a dead dandelion that I killed using salt and boiling water.




I read it somewhere on the internet some time ago and it always stayed with me, in the back of my mind somewhere.  (I apologize to that person because I can no longer find where I found this or remember anything about what site I was on.  Otherwise I would happily and joyfully give credit where credit is due!)

This weekend the information popped to the front of my mind so I got the box of salt, regular table salt, and poured a little on the middle of the dandelion.

Then I boiled a pot of water.

When that was done, mere seconds later, I poured the pot of boiling water on the salted middle of the dandelion.

No more pesticides, no more boring “digging up the dandelions” sessions!

    Oh heck, that reminds of something I did in Elementary school. We were planting and we all had these little plants that had just started. One of my classmates told me salt was a secret to make the plants grow faster so I put salt on all the plants thinking everyone would be happy. Needless to say, they all died and my teacher was MAD!
