Every time I learn something new I have to run to my computer and post about it in AR, like it is my diary...if I don't write about it, my news will be lost forever. Now that I have streamlined my recycling at home and every shred of recyclable material makes it into the right barrel, its time to expand my horizons.
Now I am going to tackle how I take care of weeds once and for all, there is a by-product of milled corn called Cockadoodle Doo's Organic Weed Control. It is a pre-emergent suppressor that will prevent new weeds from sprouting. They say it is safe for children and pets and won't harm insects (darn), soil organisms, or aquatic life. It runs about $30 for 25 lb. and you can order it online; you guessed it...www.cockadoodledoo.com. I have not tried it yet. If you have please let me know how it worked...I have an acre of weeds.
I'm not done...to get rid of existing weeds organically without pulling them out of the ground, there is a product called Nature's Avenger. It is a fast acting, natural-citrus-oil-based herbicide that strips away the plant's waxy cuticle, causing dehydration which then destroys the weed. (this process could take awhile) but it only cost's $8 for a 24 oz. spray bottle. www.naturesavenger.com
