LIFE BEFORE PINTEREST. . .
It's that time of year again. . .you know. . .when weeds threaten to overtake the world.
We have a large courtyard covered in stone. Unfortunately, the stones were laid without mortar or cement. I was hoping that over time, moss would grow between them, giving the stones an "old world, been there forever" appearance. However, the only thing I have been able to grow (and grow in abundance!) is more weeds! BIG weeds, little weeds, pretty weeds, ugly weeds. . . so many weeds.
Initially, I would pull the weeds from between each and
every stone. It involved several days of back-breaking work, aching muscles and cramped fingers. Sadly, before I could claim victory, I would discover that the menacing little devils were growing back!
Then one day, I discovered Pinterest! Pinterest has hundreds of ways to rid your yard of weeds. I tried a few, but they didn't work very well. Until. . .I discovered the answer to all my weed woes. It was a simple formula that could be made in the average kitchen, by anyone. . .and the most amazing thing. . .it actually worked. It killed those little weeds dead!
In the photos you see half of the courtyard a week after it had been sprayed with the magic formula, and the other half of the courtyard in it's natural un-sprayed state!
This magical Pinterest formula won't harm you. . .or your children
. . .or your pets. . .but. . .the death bell will toll for all those nasty little weeds.
You will need: 1 gallon of cider vinegar
1/2 cup of table salt
1 T. of Dawn dish washing detergent
Mix well, pour into a spray bottle and SPRAY, SPRAY, SPRAY! If you choose a warm, sunny day to try this, you will see the weeds withering and dying within a couple of hours. I would avoid watering the area for a day or two so that none of the magic potion washes away. I would also use caution around plants that you don't want to wither and die!
"L.B.P." (Life Before Pinterest) was so-o-o-o-o hard, wasn't it?
