Do you have unwanted weeds in your organic garden? Of course you do and so do I! Sometimes I think the weeds grow better than all those plants that I so lovingly take care of.
In an organic garden, the best way to rid the garden of weeds is to pull them by hand – this certainly eliminates the chance of getting unwanted chemicals in your virgin soil.
But, the problem with pulling weeds by hand is that if you don’t get all of the weeds roots pulled, they’ll often grow right back.
I know I have this problem on my back porch where two layers of concrete come together. Weeds grow between these two layers and when I pull them by hand, the roots often break off – the weeds grow back.
Here’s a solution I found to my problem:
1-1/2 Gallons Water
2/3 Cup White Vinegar
1/4 Cup Salt
Bring the water to a boil and add the vinegar and salt. Stir briskly. Pour this solution over those unwanted weeds while the solution is still HOT.
Results: DEAD WEEDS! My organic garden is weed free!
