No Roundup – but what’s the alternative?


I don’t like using Roundup on weeds and stuff because I don’t like Monsanto. However, weeds and stuff I don’t want grow in great abundance up here in the Pacific NW.

My high school friend, Pam Dent Webb, posted a recipe for a do-it-yersef weed zapping formula which, I must say, works like a charm.

In a half gallon of apple cider vinegar, add 1/2 cup of Epsom salt and 1 tsp. of Dawn dish-washing liquid. Shake it up and pour what you need into a spray bottle.

Squirt it on the offending plants when the sun is shining. By the next morning, they will be saying good-bye.

This works only on plants, though. Squirting it on humans won’t make them go away (I tried); but they’ll be plenty pissed. JS
