Last night a seed was planted

Last night I was writing in my personal blog. My day had been filled with gardening and was the first really hot day of the year. I was excited. I mentioned that I did not mean for my blog to turn into a gardening blog. So, the seed was planted. This new blog will contain information and tips about Urban Farming/Gardening.

I'm sure it has been a real nuisance for my neighbors, but I've never bothered with dandelions. They didn't bother me much. The lawn is really full of them now, and with the newly planted vegetable garden, I suddenly find my self caring. I snap off the seed puffs and put them in my pants pockets to throw out later.

I filled a spray bottle with vinegar and headed out to try to kill dandelions with it. I am astounded at how fast it worked. Within a half hour the dandelions and clover were shriveling. As advised you do have to be really careful with spray drift. It is like pouring acid on plants. I have a idea to try to control it. I'll keep you posted.
