It works pretty well for small areas such as sidewalk cracks. I have had to re-apply in some cases since this method really requires a generous amount of boiling water to ensure the plants are well-cooked.
So I have been boiling a couple pots while I wash the dishes or make dinner. Which means this process is slow going, but it does work. Check out this after photo.
Dig, Pull and Chop:
For July - Weeds:
I plan to continue with our weed elimination program. It's working, but we have a long way to go with the weeds on our property.
For July - Time Management:
While time management won't directly reduce my impact on our environment. Starting Alpacamundo, moving to our farm in Colorado and working as an IT Consultant all have their place in enabling our goal for a simpler, more peaceful and eco-friendly life.
The problem is all of these things require a lot of my time and energy and the time between them is blurred. Working from home and commuting out of state are still relatively new ideas for me. Which means when I work from home, I want to spend time on farm stuff during the day then I stay up late to work on my clients stuff at night. When I'm traveling, it's the opposite.
Now bats in the ceiling and escaping alpacas need to be addressed when they occur. But as a general rule I need to be more structured with my time.
So for July, I will block out a weekly schedule for all of my activities. I will also carry my idea notebook so I can capture ideas and tasks as they come to mind then work on them during the appropriate blocked time. I feel if I am able to focus my attention better, I should be able to get it all done more effectively. Then the more effective I am at getting it done, the more quickly we will reach our goals.
