We generally don’t focus on gardening here, but we are all about doing things in an environmentally conscious way whenever possible. You know those weeds that crop up through your driveway and pavement cracks? Sometimes no matter how much you dig and yank, you can’t get them out down to the root, right? And if you don’t get the root, they’ll just grow back. So you have to resort to using some expensive and toxic chemical to kill them. Or do you? I just read about a fabulous weed-killer that’s safe for you, your kids, your pets, and the environment. It’s that old stand-by, vinegar. Fill a spray bottle with the stuff and squirt away. Bye-bye weeds!
