I previously posted, tongue firmly planted in cheek, about thistle being a solution to end world hunger since the stuff grows so fast and is so hard to kill.

Well, I feel obliged to make a public admission that thistle has caused me to abandon my vow of organic gardening. Yep. I give up.

I’m applying it with a paint brush so that it’s a localized application directly to the thistle plants. It seems to be working now.

Now, if this truly works, it leaves me with an interesting question. What am I going to do with all the hours that I normally spend each week digging thistle? hmmmmmm…
