Paul Nice rig for sure? Have you come across a good herbicide that us (non-licensed) wanna-be farmers can use? Roundup and Paraquat are great pre-emergence products. 2-4-D and Banville work great post-emergence on broadleaves. But you needed a product such as Attrazine for post-emergence on grass's. And it's restricted, maybe even banned by now?. Requires an applicators license. I know there are newer products, but haven't kept up. And the applicators license and quantity/$$$$ required makes it very impractical. Have you found a majic potion? Jack

Jeff, It's a 9' boom and the garage door is a 10x8. I was able to walk it out without touching anything. The boom is in two pieces and removes with two 5/16" wingnuts. Brent, glad to hear at least you have a clean floor. Everytime I turn around, there's another oil slick. Sometime, though, take a look at Jeff's pics. He wins the award for a clean shop! No offense Jeff, a clean shop is a safe shop! Paul

Jack, I checked on Frontier. No way, I need a Qt. and only can get 2.5 gallon jugs at $100 per gallon. My solution is this: 1. Till early as weather conditions and soil moisture permit. Patch was plowed last fall. 2. Allow weeds and grasses to sprout. 3. Spray with Gordon Products Pronto (basically Roundup+2,4-D) 4. Plant the corn. 5. Follow with two more passes of Gordons LV400 a 2,4-D Ester, for broadleaf control. Hope that works!

Jeff, You have a Nova. What is the El Camino doing in your garage? And your lift was red. Real clean for sure! You can tell I haven't been around for a while.

OK, guys. So that really isn't my shop. I was pulling a "Dutch" on you. Hey, a guy can dream, can't he? Ever heard of a little show on TNN called "Crank & Chrome" - that happens to be Sam & Dave's shop. Just a little ST fun. ;o) Jeff
