|Before the nitrogen fertilizer.|
They say the best defense is a good offense. Why do "they" always have all the answers? I spent days offensing offensively with my best offense. In real terms, I dug up the whole front bed that cuddled the horsetail. Then squeezed a few chicken amendments into it along with lots of ammonium sulfate.

See the results of too much of a good thing.
|Roots of the not-preferred plant were dug out.|
Area received a heavy dose of nitrogen fertilizer.
It will be easy to take care of any growth that springs up.
I'm thrilled and my heart sings through the Things I get to do today. The digging, the sifting for threads of roots, the redoing of my iris bed and the area around my rose--it's all just play, because I'm using sweetness and goodness to outwit and outpower something that I prefer not to have. Simple as that.
