We organically garden. We also have a limestone driveway that is plagued by weed growth. I hate the idea of Round Up and I don't like the cost. Our herb garden is along side the driveway and I wasn't fond of eating Round Up. We found a solution, though. Vinegar.
That's right. We were at some museum or zoo in Columbus and they had a sign that said that you could use vinegar as a Round Up replacement. Fantastic! I can do that!
Put straight vinegar into a spray bottle. (I have a manual pump sprayer-- thank you, Cj!--that works well for me.) Spray the vinegar on the weed when it is sunny and dry out. In a few days, you will see that your weed has turned a nice brown. Just pull the dead stuff up and you are good to go.
Voila! Vinegar is a super duper thing, though. Last week's Washer Maintenance WFMW netted a tip from Jennifer. She said to run a cup of vinegar through your wash once a month to get rid of build up of soaps and whatnot. Here's even more good stuff about vinegar!
