What? You say!  A weed killer?

Sometimes, regrettably, it is necessary to be more vigilant with pestilent plants.  Use a 6 quart or larger pot for making the following:

  • 1 gallon of white-distilled vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon dye-free liquid soap
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt

Mix together and bring all ingredients to a boil.  Ladle into a spray container and spray on weed while mixture is still hot.  Cover with newspaper and then cover with 90% weed free top soil.  The area should be ready for something new, like a garden, within 6 months.
