Thank you so much dundee!! You are a godsend!! Now maybe I can actually grow vegetables in my garden instead of weeds! That was exactly the information I was looking for. Thanks again!! thumbs_up.gif

Bindweed is a mean and hateful bane smile.gif

I did manage to burn it out of my one veggie bed..
In the fall when I tilled the bed under,,
I used "hot" horse manure..
Fresh that day , with shavings not straw..
Great , natural way to burn out any gestation of weeds ..
The next spring. I did the same thing..
Top dressed with HOT manure.. Let it sit aday..
tilled it under, let it work, then cooled and sweetend the soil
with a bit of lime,,works like a charm !

I really do not like to use Pestisides..
except for Round Up,, it really helps control Bind weed, but not
get rid of it..
I have found , gently following it to the root..
tearing it out and treating the root area with BOILING water to work
pretty darm well,, a bit of viniger in the water helps too..
and its also cheap ! smile.gif

It was a daily battle in my old garden , my neighbor had it coming out from
under her shed, and did'nt do a thing about it.
Rip it out when you see it, get to the root smile.gif
And next year maybe rent a tiller , and try the hot manure smile.gif

Remember, the best thing to leave in your garden,
is foot prints !

Thanks Paula!

I don't really care for pesticides or chemicals of any kind, myself, but I'm getting so sick of these weeds I'm ready to use anything!! I do have a tiller and using it regularly seem to slow them down a bit but I never though of the 'hot' manure method. That would be better than chemicals. Maybe I will give that a try this fall, and spring, if it doesn't work I can always use the chemicals as a 'last resort'! Perhaps the vinegar water will help control what is already infesting my onions this year. Thanks for all your help!

Sonee,
You are more than welcome smile.gif
I hear you about the pestisides..
The one thing I do like about Round Up..
is that it neturlizes as soon as it hits soil !
So if you have to use one , thats a kind one to the water table smile.gif

As a "fan" of Rachel Carson
http://www.rachelcarson.org/
I have small love for most of them ...

The hot manure will work ...
and it is nothing but good for the soil..
I am growing most of my veggies in ten gallon buckets this year,
as I am inbetween homes, and have been using horse pucky as a base..
I've got bragging rights on blossoms and I think the earliest tomato
I have ever gotten..

There are ways , if we care to take the time.. always I think..
If you can find the source of the bindweed.. the boiling water works too,,
but if there are other tender wanted roots in the area, you risk losing those as well
I love the boiling water for un wanted veggetation in cracks in the sidewalk smile.gif

Good luck Sonee..
Please let me know how your battle goes..

In Service to the Dream,
Paula

I planted 25 more perenials in the flower bed yesterday. The greenhouse was having their end of season 1/2 price sale. We also put a pegola top on the patio. The backyard is slowly coming together. Going to try to glue my celtic cross back together. It blew over during a thunderstorm and broke. Need to get it back in the flower bed. I am going to take some pictures of the flower bed and the patio. Hopefully I can figure out how to post them. smile.gif
