You’ve probably heard more and more “bad news” about chemical herbicides and insecticides in recent times – and great controversy has arisen, with many claims that they are very destructive to the environment. Pesticides end up in the food chain and the water supply – and “low level toxicity” is a complex subject: When there are so many chemicals flying around in the environment, it is hard to ascertain which ones may be having toxic effects. The best thing you can do, in our view, is to minimize your use of these things. In truth, most people are just looking for a “quick fix” for their problems and don’t know of other methods.
The good news is that with a little know-how, it’s possible to avoid using chemicals completely. For example, today I discovered a wasp spray that uses only essential oils of lemongrass and clove as its active ingredients!
Our friends over at Natural Living Ideas have put together an awesome list of 8 ways to get rid of weeds without using toxic chems. Some of these methods are so devastatingly simple that you’ll be surprised you didn’t think of them (my personal fav is the “scald them” method using pasta water that would go down the drain.)
However there is one more tip that they didn’t mention that I think deserves a mention: Eat them!
Now of course, you will need to be expert enough to tell an edible plant from a toxic one. So don’t try it unless you really are sure what you are eating. But several plants that are considered common weeds are actually edible and nutritious – for example dandelions (click the link to see 40 things to do with dandelions). There are also books on the subject – check out Richard Mabey’s classic Food For Free.
Ok, here is the link to the original list of 8 Natural Ways To Kill Garden Weeds.

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.
Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.
