Nate came home this weekend with Roundup weed killer. He had had it with the weeds in our rocks lining the driveway. They don't really bother me, but I'm not the one pulling them.

Regardless of his frustration, I told him I really was not okay with using Roundup, we agreed to look up some safer alternatives. We agreed to try spraying vinegar on the weeds. One week later, the weeds are brown and shriveling. and Nate will be returning the Roundup.

We will need to do some prevention to keep the weeds from reseeding. Corn gluten is supposed to prevent seeds from growing, but it takes a few years to be efffective. We've put corn gluten down twice, so we'll see what the outcomes are in a year or two.
