Weekend Gardener: Homemade Weed Killer Recipe

Weekend Gardener

April 17th, 2015 – Williamson County Weekend Gardener


Someone sent us this weed killer recipe from a Facebook post, and it’s frankly been tough figuring out where it originated — so if you know, please comment and we’ll add the appropriate credits.

This time of year, dealing with weeds begins to take over a lot of gardening time; especially with all the rain we’ve had.  The little buggers have gotten almost perfect conditions to grow — and the rain has kept us indoors so we didn’t even see them growing.

It’s always with reluctance that I break out the chemicals, so this week seemed like a good time to share this homemade, hopefully less toxic recipe if you’re so inclined to save money, save the environment, or just build a better mouse trap when it comes to weeds.
