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
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! ;-)
