Aloha Friday - Weed Killer

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday. Every Friday (well, ok, almost every Friday) I ask a simple question for you to answer--nothing that requires a lengthy response. 

Today I've been doing some weeding.  I weed mostly by hand, because I try to avoid adding chemicals to my yard (I'll do it for ants, but not for weeds), and because I'm afraid the weed killers will kill something I want to keep, like the wild primrose that graces my yard. 

So, this week's questions is...
Do you use weed killer?  Why/why not?
You can answer in the comments.  Thanks!

If you have a blog and would like to post your own questions you can leave your link  at the linkys at An Island Life.

    No, we don't really have any weeds.

  2. No, because we don't have any weeds.
    Have a great weekend!

  3. I'm like you - I weed by hand and don't use weed killer because I'm afraid I might kill something I want to keep! :)

    Aloha: April Fools!

  4. If I weed, I weed by hand. But I don't weed since I have nothing to weed

  5. I don't weed at all! Thank goodness, we live in a school campus where the yards are taken cared for us!

  6. We don't as yet but we'll start using weed killer soon.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  7. I don't think we do. But then again we barely have grass! LOL!

  8. I don't like chemicals for the sake of my kids who play in my yard and for the environment in general.

    Morning glory is the only thing that has made me consider chemicals, but it strangles my hedges so thoroughly I couldn't guarantee the safety of the hedges... If anyone knows a great way to get rid of morning glory (aside from hours and hours of ripping it out) please let me know!!!
