Nothing like the smell of burning napalm in the morning.

Step 1: Home Depot. You're going to really want to hit the warm-weather face mask and sledgehammer aisles...

A weed whisperer coaxes them out gently and humanely.

For really fine control you can use a tiger torch. Kills weeds dead.

Incorrect harvesting is what killed Becky.

"The best time to pull a weed is when you're standing next to it," Garland said.

To hell with pulling. Spray with weed be gone or generic equivalent, the dead roots become organic matter for the plants you want.

Unless you're going after the weeds in the garden. Weedbegone works way too well there.

Yeah. "I'll just spritz this one tiny dandelion." Evening dew sets in and the whole damn tulip bed is now dead from .00005 ounces.

Generally a weed is just a plant you don't like*, and one of the best ways to "fight" them is to accept them. For example, dandelions. My grandmother used to call them "dahn-DELL-eeuns" like they were some fancy French blossom... "look at all the gorgeous dahn-DELL-eeuns blooming in my yard."

/*some are seriously bad & invasive, though... I'm looking at you, Japanese Knotweed. Good luck trying to get rid of that monstrosity.

Correct answer: Learn to only care about the ones where you can see them, or that cost you money. Learn to accept all the others.

Because they'll never go away.
