I attempt to use organic techniques in the garden whenever possible, although I'm not a True Believer in the classic sense of the term. One thing I do dislike are chemical herbicides like RoundUp, but I occasionally have used it when the weed situation has gotten out of control and I'm really busy with other things. No more. I read that enhanced vinegar--really just 10 percent acetic acid, made from grain alcohol, not glacial acetic acid, desiccates the weeds, drying them out until they die. And guess what? It works really, really well on every weed I sprayed it on. It's made by Soil Mender Products in Tulia, Texas, and you can buy it here.
