Subject: RE: BS: Weapons of mass weed destruction
Oooh Jon, I just showed that to him and he says he'd love one!! Lord help us all, the whole village will be going up in flames!

I really hate using any chemicals in the garden, and when I was younger and stronger, I virtuously dug all the weeds out by hand, and used the hoe regularly. I'm not into emerald green velvet lawns, but some weeds are a real pain, and I have to try weed killer nowadays.

Our last big garden was lovely, because we merely mowed broad paths through the grass (ride-on mower) and let the wildflowers grow, only mowing at the end of the summer so that thugs like nettles didn't get a hold. That garden was a wildlife sanctuary. I dug a huge pond too, and the newts, dragonflies and frogs were all over the place. Wish I had that energy now, but... I'm just thankful I'm still breathing!
