Community Garden - organic weed control demonstration

This is a general announcement that we will have a garden work session this coming Sunday, 3-16-14 starting at 12:00 noon with:
  • weed pulling, 
  • vinegar spraying demonstration and 
  • Copper Gazette doing a photo shoot of Darrell Jr. working with his two mentors.
Most are aware of the invasive nature of the Morning Glory we have in the garden.  This year we are determined to put that in check.  Since we are organic and will not use most pesticides, we've identified concentrated vinegar (20% strength) mixed with citric acid as a way to kill the Morning Glory back to its roots.    We've a test section in the garden on which to try this out - Come Watch!
