Salt Experiment After 48 Hours

After 48 hours you can really tell a difference between the area I salted and the area I didn't.  The weeds I salted aren't all 100% dead, but most of them look like they're pretty much done for.  YAY!

Every night we're had torrential downpours, so I'm not sure how that will effect the salt treatment.  Will the weeds grow back faster if the rain is washing away the salt?  Will the weeds die faster if the rain is helping to carry the salt into the ground?  Will the rain cause the weeds to grow back fast by diluting the salinity?  I don't know.

This calls for more experimentation!

Here's the larger picture:

 Here's a close-up of the salted vs. unsalted area:
