…boiling water that is.
Somewhere, at some time, while surfing around the internet I read that boiling water is an effective way to kill weeds. I stored it in the dim recesses of my mind and continued to get rid of my weeds the hard way, by pulling them out.
Then last weekend I was rather busy AND the weeds on the path were annoying me AND weeds in paths aren’t something you can just casually pull out, you need tools to get down into the cracks between the bricks. And my mind remembered…yeah, boiling water kills weeds.
So I tried it. Ten minutes or so of gleefully boiling the path weeds alive.
Today I noticed that they were DEAD. It works. I’m a convert!
