How to Kill an Eeeeeevuhl Plant, Part 2

Remember the eeeevuhl plant? Well, I’ve decided not to kill it with a sword after all and not use a spade either (the sword wouldn’t have only been a deux ex machina, but also completely ridiculous — hence no sword). Instead, I now use a machete (and salt and lime water) to get rid of the nasty thing. 🙂

    Would they have had a machete? I looked up the OED and it says a machete is “A broad, heavy knife or cutlass used as an implement or as a weapon, originating in Central America and the Caribbean.” Their examples (in the period you’re writing in) all seem to relate to voyages or travels outside Britain.

    How about a scythe? They’re big and come with the recommendation of the Grim Reaper, so should have some effect on a large and evil plant.
