I am a great wife. I decided to help out a little outside because I'm just that nice.
I was so tired of the stupid dandelions and clover taking over our yard that I figured I'm done waiting to see if Jeremy will take care of it, I'll do it myself. I went outside and mixed up a spray bottle of 2-4-D. I put in 1 part poison, and 4 parts water. Actually, I couldn't find any instructions on the 2-4-D, so I called Jeremy and had him look up the proportions on the internet, and he came up with a 1:4 ratio. So, 1 cup of poison, 4 cups of water.
After mixing up my little concoction I proudly went and sprayed any weed in sight, plus a lot of clover. By midday the weeds were starting to wither and die off. Woo hoo! Well, after talking to Daddy about the proportions he uses on his weeds, it turns out that I really should have put in about a tablespoon of the poison. My mix was so potent that it killed a lot more than just the weeds. It pretty much destroyed anything the spray touched. Now our grass looks like this.
