Judging by the amount of complaints filling up my News Feed, it looks like just about everyone now has the new Facebook Timeline.
So with all this change and newness (and grumbling) rolling around Facebook, now is probably as good a time as ever to step back and reexamine our relationship with the planet's favorite place to both stalk ex-girlfriends AND play Scrabble. And doing it several times an hour will result in something else straight out of high school: Your friends will stop talking to you. And as a friend points out, all those well-intended baby pic posts are probably especially eyeroll-inducing for all your single friends anxiously watching their biological clock keep ticking.
The next time you want to murder your weeds, why douse them with something that will remain in the soil for who knows how long?
I've got a bit of Round Up left from my more ignorant days and plan to use it on a patch of poison ivy and then never buy it again. Anonymous – Over on my Facebook page, a reader said she kills her really tough weeds by adding salt and a drop of dishwashing liquid to white vinegar. Otherwise, certain established weeds can be eradicated only by pulling them up, or by repeatedly removing their foliage. I've used boiling water successfully, but it is very labor intensive to bring all those full teakettles to the garden. Barb – The acetic acid in household white vinegar is not only weak, it is water soluble. That said, I would not use salt in any situation other than for spot-treating extra-tough weeds that grow in a pathway, or between the cracks of a stone patio. Regarding Bermuda Grass — I've heard that it is easier to split an atom than to eradicate this invasive! After the Carthaginian war, the Romans salted their fields, actually plowing salt into the earth. I just love this column!I'm legally blind and cannot read my books anymore, but I have a special program on my computer that I can read this. If you are looking to get rid of the moles, or other of nature’s friends, spray a mix of egg whites and water.
Since the gun is classified as an assault weapon by California, you would need to have the gun converted to a single shot outside the state and then shipped to a dealer willing to do the transfer. To convert to a single shot, you would need 2 things, a magazine lock and a zero round magazine. So you use the magazine lock to drop the single shot mag, and insert one that holds 10 rounds. Keep in mind that if you put the stock on it or a forward grip, you will be inviting trouble.

And those that don't, well, I look forward to reading your status update complaining about it shortly. They're all taken with an outstretched hand positioned around forehead-level with the camera tilting down.
Begging for attention by posting cryptic status updates that would appear as if you left off a really crucial second sentence. And that’s why I use vinegar on the gravel paths, brick walk-ways, and blue-stone patio here at A Garden for the House. As I said earlier, I use vinegar only on walkways, where grass and ornamental plants are not an issue. I have since used it exclusively where I used to use roundup: on the cracks between blue stone pavers on my patio. Deprived of food-making foliage, the weed's root or rhizome eventually withers and dies. My hubby was just reading this over my shoulder and wants to know what it will kill because our yard is full of weeds and we want the grass to come through. Vinegar is not selective; it will indeed kill lawn grass if it comes in contact with the blades.
Others, however, claim that both salt and surfactant (a small amount of dishwashing liquid)increases vinegar's efficacy when dealing with tough weeds.
Unlike plain vinegar, salt lingers in the soil and can leach into areas where desirable plants live. I was the anon who originally asked about the bermuda grass, Just hadn't signed in, so it listed me as such. From what I read, the vinegar with kill the weeds, and the salt will prevent growth in the future. Yes, anything involving salt is probably better used in walkways, etc., than in ornamental beds. Personally, I've never needed to add salt (or dish-washing liquid) when treating weeds with vinegar. Please take it as a compliment that every time I smell vinegar I can't help but think of this great advice! Three years ago after Hurricane Gustav, some things appeared that we'd never seen before- including a fast-growing vine in our Iris plants. Mulch can be applied to the bed now too, not over the rhizomes, of course, but around them. Our front and side banks are covered with unwanted plants and flowers – Yuka, irises, and day lilies.

How long do you think if I use vinegar on the weeds, before I can plant the plants without hurting the new plants?
But like many other tough unwanteds, if you spray with vinegar, and the weeds reappear, you’ll have to spray again and again. Once you’ve sprayed your weeds and their foliage has withered (and, of course, after you’ve removed the fried debris), you can plant. Unless your eyes and nose really are double the size of your mouth, I imagine you won't love the distorted view this tends to produce.
These were photographed yesterday afternoon, just moments before I sprayed them with cheap, straight-from-the-bottle, store-brand white vinegar. The stems break easily when we try to pull it up, so we have been unable to get rid of it, and it keeps getting thicker and has covered the Iris plants. And even if they do, they're forgotten as soon as the person scrolls past it to the next item on their News Feed. We can all have cute children and don't need to advertise their adorability on a daily, or even weekly, basis. Otherwise, pour the vinegar into a spray bottle, and aim the nozzle directly at the weeds you wish to kill.
A piece of cardboard, held against a shrub or perennial, makes an effective shield against drifting vinegar. We put out a call to friends, neighbors, and strangers to come dig up whatever they wanted. I have tried pulling and pulling and pulling, digging, boiling water, black plastic, vinegar, burning, etc. Do you have any other suggestions as to how to kill back the tougher stuff without using Roundup?
This has gone on for several years and we still have plants and weeds coming through the plastic and mulch.
We have a few things we would like to keep – Knock-out roses and azaleas (which have not been affected by the Roundup, fortunately).
