Kubota Man set up the little old garden tractor and the estate sprayer with a 25 gallon tank: I was declaring war on weeds. Round-Up and a spray wand are my weapons!
I was underambitious, since I told him to mix up 10 gallons of solution--that got me halfway through the new saskatoon/haskap/currant/gooseberry/jostaberry/raspberry patch. So I mixed up 25 gallons, did a strip alongside the greenhouse and finished the big patch--and it looks like rain. Hope it holds off for a couple of hours. That was a lot easier than carrying and pumping by hand.
Next time it will be neglected flower beds--but I will have to dress up the shrubs and perennials in pails and plastic garbage bags.
