2012 War On Bindweed #1: The Bindweed Battle Part 999

05-30-2012 06:59 AM by MsDebbieP | 12 comments »

May 31/12 And the battle continues. The other day I had thrown in the towel. Today… I’m picking it up again. So what has happened? Well, the other day on my walkabout I saw that my buckwheat plan wasn’t going as I had hoped. The buckwheat didn’t come up as expected and there is no way the roots can strangle out those of the bindweed. Plus, further research has planted fear into my heart about the evil buckwheat and trying to get rid of it… so I think...

Too busy for gardening

10-16-2009 09:13 AM by Bill | 9 comments »

I have been ignoring my garden for the last few months, and it shows. It is overgrown with weeds and such. But, I have been busy working on a project – the tiny trailer house. I posted it on Lumberjocks, so I thought I would add a mention here as well for those who might be interested. Once I get that done, I can get back to the garden and get those weeds out.

After responding to a post here that suggested Butterfly bushes, which may or may not be noxious in your area, I thought it might be timely to share some information about Noxious Weeds with our community. Keep in mind that my discussion relates specifically to Washington State. However, I hope it inspires you to seek out more information about how weeds are classified in your area. Like me, you may be sad and surprised...

Winter Weeds and Winter Weed Control

01-29-2008 10:57 AM by gardenmentor | 1 comment »

Today the frozen ground in Seattle is beginning to melt. Hard freezes don’t always happen here in winter. Sure, we get a bit of a freeze, but having the ground solid for more than a couple of winter days in a row is rare. This winter we got hit a bit harder and are just now starting to thaw out. Sure, we may have another freeze before winter is over, but for now weeding is definitely on the table. For more information about winter weeds and controlling weeds in Seattle and western wa...
