|I believe it is a Mophead or Macrophylla...I think.|
This was the not so successful application. Heavy weeds, full grown and sun in the morning only. To the right is the beginning
This picture is the end after 2 applications. The leaves are turning brown and dry but the stems are not affected.
My conclusion on the vinegar is this - it works for small weeds in direct sunlight. It is possible that the 20% solution would work on the larger older weeds but I am not sure I want to deal with that level of acid exposure. The other thing is - this kills the bugs in the ground at the time but it does not kill the ground like a salt solution will.
This was Hubby's tomato bed on the first of June
This is the tomato bed tonight 15 days later! Amazing what a little sunshine will do. He has quite a few green tomatoes already, we are salivating and planning for fresh tomatoes already!
I took a broccoli salad to the pot luck today and it turned out pretty well (broccoli and onions from the garden) so we will definitely be having it again.
Think I will have 8 or 9 strawberries tomorrow - not really enough to do anything with I will probably be forced to just eat them! (did I sound too greedy, did the loud sigh sound feigned?) The chicken wire pup tent Hubby made is working a charm, the birds can look but not touch!
I think that catches us up, I will have a post on a gift I made for the oldest Daughter-in-Law's birthday but she hasn't got it in the mail yet (she should be the first to see it) so it will be in a few days. Let's see, what will I do tomorrow - I know I'll pull weeds! Truly hate the little buggers and yet am psychologically incapable of doing the no-till thing and letting them grow. I guess it keeps me out of the bars, yes? Hope your week is splendid!
