I would try using triclopyr on it. Try cutting the stems off at ground level and painting the cut stems with the neat triclopyr solution with a small paint brush to (try to) kill the root. There is an Ortho poison ivy & brush killer that contains [more]

Re: Pressure Cookers

I have a pressure cooker that came from Sears. It is really old, I think I bought it in 1962 when I first married. I looked at it last week and was wondering if Sears would have a replacement for the ring in the top. I doubt it.
