Hi Howard & Linda,

Something you may want to consider is that Roundup (glyphosphate) has been banned from French garden centers for "probably being carcinogenic to humans". What to use instead? Here is a cheap and environmentally friendly weed killer:

INGREDIENTS - Yields 1 gallon
• 2 cups table salt
• 1 gallon white vinegar (make sure it has 5 percent acidity)
• 8 drops liquid dishwashing soap, preferably Dawn

1. Mix this up in a large container and then put some in a spray bottle.
2. Spray the offending weed or vegetation. It should die in a couple of days.
3. Make sure you put your homemade round-up in a safe place.
4. Enjoy your weed-free area!

All the best to you,
~Patty Maguet

The potatoes look great, Linda! Nothing better than fresh dug potatoes...yum!!

I've used the vinegar recipe for weeds and it works very well. Roundup is BAD.
