Re: CULT: toxic Canada thistles?

Hi Laurie:
       I feel like I may be "preaching to the choir" when I talk with you!! I 
had thistles in Arkansas. The trick, secret, whatever, is DON'T LET THEM 
FLOWER! About every two weeks I did a "walk-about" with sprayer and RoundUp 
(dyed with a red dye), and sprayed every thistle upstart. I did this 
faithfully for about 4 years and managed to get rid of them - generally. 
There will always be seeds from neighboring farms that blow on your land and 
germinate. Whenever I mowed, I carried little flags on skinny metal stakes 
with me and stuck them where ever I saw a new plant emerging. If you have 
them in your area, you HAVE THEM in your garden - just keep on spraying and 
don't let them flower.
