Thanks for that link SHARJOPAUL! We're having the same problem with nut grass.

Oh, NOW I know what you're talking about!! That annoying grass that you can pull up so easily, but comes right back when you turn around....

Good to know there's a cure.....

Thanks!

Thanks for the molasses tip. I wondered about it when I saw it in our local feed store.

�I feel the greatest destroyer of peace today is 'Abortion', because it is a war against the child... A direct killing of the innocent child, 'Murder' by the mother herself... And if we can accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love... And we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts...�
� Mother Teresa

My garden is being taken over by Nut Grass (that's what we call it in Arkansas) hope that's the correct name. It comes up from a nut/tuber root deep in the ground and spreads by sending out root runners to make a new plant. I have tilled multiple times before planting to try to kill it out, pulling does nothing but clear it out for a short time. The root is so deep it is hard to remove. I tried last year putting newspaper down around my tomatoes to cover the Grass but it actually poke through the newspaper - maybe it needed to be thicker? What can I do to get rid of this grass. It will finally put up a top bloom that has stickers like burrs on it.
Thanks for your ideas
