With rain comes grass and weeds in my garden. I refuse to use harsh chemicals. Breathing in, let alone putting them on my plants that I intend to ingest, is not for me. I’m not fond of being on the losing end of a hoe. I’m not above it, I have done it for years, just not fond of it. This year I decided to try something new at the insistence of a friend.
(yes, those are my fantastic sloggers in the background of the sprayer photo! I love those things!)
I used a gallon and a half of vinegar and blue dawn dish soap. I had part of a gallon of apple cider vinegar and white vinegar on hand. I filled my sprayer with the vinegar then added about a quarter of a cup of dish soap. I took my trusty sprayer to the garden and sprayed around my plants where the grass was growing. I wasn’t as methodical as I may should have been, which you will see in the subsequent photos.
After spraying part of my garden, I waited to see it the next day. I was pleasantly surprised as to what I found! It worked! Everywhere I sprayed around my plants, the grass had died off.
The next time I mixed up this wondrous concoction, I used a gallon and a half of all white vinegar and 1/4 cup dawn.
Let me know how this works for you!
