I'm no help in the chemical department, but your comment about the knees (I
know, I know) reminded me of a tool my mom had years ago for dispensing
liquid weed killer while standing. It was a transparent green plastic tube
with a metal spike on the end, which when you pushed it down onto a weed
would release a small amount of the liquid. I remember it working quite
well, but I don't think I've seen one in, oh, a couple of decades. Does
this ring a bell with anyone, and does this gadget still exist?
Barb in Santa Fe, where it nearly got to freezing today (31.8 F), and the
snow's not melting yet, but at least it compacted.
