Natural Weed Killer

Last year I had a whole new garden space. 
I was over the moon tickled.

It started off AMAZING - and ended TERRIBLE.

Besides the neverending downpour of rain last summer, 
my garden was overgrown with weeds.

So many damn weeds. 

It was completely out of my control. I gave up. 

This year I'm not gonna take it. 

I found this recipe online for a natural weed killer. 
It seems to be a pretty common recipe found on multiple sites, 
not sure who came up with the concoction first.
All you need - 
A bucket
1 gallon vinegar
1 cup salt
1 tablespoon of dish soap
funnel
spray bottle

Mix it all together in the bucket, use the funnel to pour the concoction into the spray bottle, and start spraying.

I covered the area pretty well. I sprayed and sprayed and sprayed until the whole gallon was used up.

The results?

So far, so good.

No weeds.

I read that once you do this, nothing will grow.

Which is fine with me, because I wasn't happy with the soil.

I now have all new dirt. I am also adding my very own compost collected from the pulp of my morning juices. 

The garden is ready for planting.
