I am being invaded by wild onion. It is loving this wet ground. I have never seen as much as this year, and not just in my disturbed back yard.
I've been digging up the clumps but can't keep up with the spread. Also I am crooked from crawling from clump to clump on my knees to dig these things out. I've read about the big flamethrower thingy for weeds, but I really don't want to invest in one because other than the onion grass where I eventually want to plant things, I don't care about my weeds. (That is, my alleged lawn is so weedy that I'd have to burn my whole yard to get rid of them.)
If I use a shovel to pop up divots of the bunches of bulbs, and then use a regular small propane touch to fry the bulbs, would that work OK? I would still have to crawl around to each divit, but at least I wouldn't have to do it more than once, I think.
