Re: quack grass

Hi, Cyndy (and everyone else)!

>Giving into the time constraint of  preparing the garden plots for planting
this spring, I roto-tilled.  More & more I am regretting that decision as
this process ignited the growth of quack grass & Canadian thistle.......UGH!
Other than digging them up & cooking them on the asphalt before tossing into
the compost, does anybody know of an alternative organic method in which to
eliminate them?  

Newspaper and cardboard wherever there ISN'T a plant you actually want to be
growing.  You don't totally get rid of them (bindweed is still the bane of
my existance! ;-(), but it keeps them down to a managable number.

Cooking on asphalt is good when you're really frustrated! ;-)
