We just returned from a three week motorcycle trip. It is always great to get home until reality sets in. Tons of mail. Grass needs cutting. Branches down from wind and storms and the gardens are a mess. We have a cucumber plant that thinks it owns all the space in the kitchen garden. Then there are all the weeds. I don’t know why flowers and vegetables need so much TLC to look good but a weed can erupt in the tiniest crack and get huge in days. Seriously parts of the garden look like we haven’t tended to it in years. The big weeds I am just going to pull out at this point but the small wannabees are going to get it with one of these DIY Weed killer tricks I have found.
There are several weed killer tricks out there. Most of them are based on vinegar. We will start with a vinegar recipe I have tried and had reasonable luck with.
