comment what is this plant which has leaves like flower?
i don't think conclusive identification could be made if it was in flower... as you would be trying to id it vs another member of its own species... it is a cabbage or a kale... I vote kale, but it is just sematics... if it had a thick stem it would be kohlrabi etc.

don't use any copper ion if it can possibly get into any kind of water table downstream, it is extremely toxic to algae and aquatic plants.

That is terpentene, and no. I mean tarpaulin, which is like a waterproof sheet woven out of some sort of plastic.

comment “Saving” an unattended yard?
If you are patient, you could just seed, it may be a somewhat iterative process. In the spring get it up to 85% then this fall reseed to get it completely filled in.

You can try... But branches and grafting are like money and gambling, don't risk what you aren't willing to lose :)

comment What is the risk of using 4% 2T mixture in a chainsaw that needs 2% 2T?
Yeah 1:50 to 1:25 will not even likely foul a plug in a short amount of time. Eventually all sorts of gunk could grow in there, but way less murderous than using plain gas.
