Quick tip this morning before I get to peeling roasted chiles. A few weeks ago Rick discovered something that should have been quite obvious.
In the past, when we’ve done some canning, Rick takes the boiling water out and dumps it on the weeds growing between the cracks of the sidewalk to kill them. One day we realized this water would kill not just the weeds poking through the cement, but the weeds in the garden too! (Duh!)
Be careful with this – boiling water will kill any plant, good or bad. But if you need an easy, cheap, chemical free weed killer – boiling water will do the trick!
Any other obvious tricks out there that we don’t know yet? I’m sure there are a billion. Please share them here!!
Sometimes it’s the little things.
Well that will sure beat the roundup I put off spraying…thanks for advice.
