White Vinegar Weed Killer - The Organic Way - Did this in VT it works!
Alternative to Roundup weed killer
The next time you walk outside and see a garden bed full of weeds and reach for the Roundup, why not stop and ask yourself a question. “Why douse them with something that will remain in the soil for who knows how long?” Maybe you should reach for vinegar instead. Vinegar is cheap. It’s easy to use. White Vinegar Weed Killer is the way to go. You can use either plain vinegar, or mix it with dawn dish washing soap and salt and pour into a spray bottle. Spray directly on the weeds on a hot day ...

Did you know that you can grow roses from cuttings? Simply cut healthy stems, place them in large potatoes, and them bury them 3-4 inches deep in a healthy soil mixture of peet moss and top soil. The potatoes keep the stems moist and help develop the root systems. It's a perfectly simple way to multiply your rose garden without spending lots of $$$.

Rooting Rose Cuttings ----------- Propagating roses by cuttings is easy. Some say the secret of success is the humble potato! Before planting rose cuttings, push the bottom end into a small potato, which keeps the cuttings moist as they develop roots. It sounds crazy, but apparently it works really well.

Plants have best friends just like people do. Marigolds help tomatoes and roses grow better. Nasturtiums keep bugs away from squash and broccoli. Petunias protect beans from beetles and oregano chases them away from cucumbers. Geraniums keep Japanese beetles away from roses and corn. Chives make carrots sweeter, and basil makes tomatoes even tastier
