A gentleman dropped off a bottle of Roundup at the HHWF on Monday, and mentioned to me that a solution of vinegar, epsom salt, and dish soap worked better for him than the pesticide for treating/killing weeds.
Yesterday, THIS popped up in my Facebook feed... Coincidence?
I'm willing to give it a try!
(FYI - This mixture, like Roundup, is non-selective, meaning it will likely damage any vegetation it comes in contact with.)
