Reeves shows how to make a giant paintbrush to "paint" weeds out of your lawn without hurting your grass. All you need is a rake, an old towel, some string and a herbicide.
A popular gardening show in its third season on 0019 Georgia Public Television 037A , this week's show includes a couple of recipes. One is for preparing soil for planting. The other is for cooking homemade suet for the birds. Reeves takes a look, too, at the eye-catching purple hyacinth bean.
Besides all that, guest Wayne McLaurin lists the best cucumber varieties for your backyard garden. And Jim Midcap shows the Lenten rose (Helleborus orientalis), a 1999 Georgia Gold Medal Winner.
