Hound Dogging It

Got dandelions? Thistles? Hate poison? Too creaky and twisted to get down on your arthritic knees and grub the suckers out?

Sisters and brothers, assemble right over here and pay attention:

Get your self a Weed Hound from Hound Dog.

Place it over the noxious weed.

Step on the steel foot thang.

Six fluted spikes wrap around the root, down in the soil.

I give my dawg a slight twist, then pull out of the soil. The entire plant is extracted. Tap the top of the extractor. The plant carcass pops into a bucket, or a wheelbarrow.

Repeat.

Once the extraction session is done you can compost the weeds. If you're Mister Natural you can wash the leaves for salad greens, and wash and dry and roast the roots to make a coffee substitute. I've done both. Taste like shit.

My advice, compost them.

Weed Hound. Bites good without barking. Sold in North America, made in China. But what did you expect?
