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...”

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
