This spring is turning out to have a bumper crop of weeds. Each year seems to have a different weed problem. This year, my goal is to conquer the indomitable SHOTWEED. If you live in the Pacific Northwest, you’ve probably come across this lovely plant. It starts early in the spring with a lovely circular shape of leaves, close to the ground. The first bit of warming and it sends up a flower stem right from the middle, the pretty white flowers bloom and then the long skinny seeds form. Add a bit more heat, some water and this plant literally explodes. When the seeds are ready, there is no way to pull the plan without causing the seeds to pop and distribute everywhere. You have to pull them before the seeds are ready to pop. If you miss it, then you have to wait until next spring.
What tools are in your tool belt? Probably depends on what repairs you normally do, but for general household repairs, here’s what my toolbelt is stocked with:
What else should be included? My toolbelt has a spot for a hammer, but I don’t use it. No point in carrying a bulky hammer around all the time. The electrical tester is my favorite new tool. Checkout this post about it: klein electrical tester
As a homeowner, there’s no end to repairs around the house. Some of them are fun, others complicated, but whatever the situation, having the proper tools is critical to getting the job done right.
