Now this is really bizarre. Regular readers may remember that last month I solicited suggestions on how to remove weeds from my pond. I don’t now how the below email found me but perhaps I suggested the possibility of using copper sulfate although I thought it might not be permitted in NYS. It is permitted in Kentucky but sadly my pond is not in Kentucky.

Well this AM I got this email from China although the gentleman’s name is Suri. I think they must have Googled my blog or brought it up on a keyword search. I have the strong feeling when Suri outlines the uses for copper sulfate, my pond is below the bottom of the list.

But if nothing else he has gotten me back on the case and I will find out from the DEC whether copper sulfate is legal in the beautiful Hudson Valley of New york.
