    I'm a squatter, so I didn't have any issues with it, LOL! Might not be the best idea for leafy veggies though, like lettuce. Not sure I'd want to eat it after growing with bird poop all around it, even after washing!

    I also use the bedding from the coops in my garden. I pile it up through the winter then spread it over the garden and til it into the soil. During the summer I spread the bedding between the rows which does help to choke out weeds. I find I don't barefoot garden like I used to [​IMG] but I get great results especially the jalapenos and tomatoes!

    Psh. I find it to be CLEANER to walk on the bedding than to walk on the bare soil. Before we started using bedding, my feet were always BLACK, and I'd have to wash up every time I played in the garden. That kind of thing is EXACTLY why there's the wash cloth rule... Use the wash cloth for your body, legs and arms, use your hands only to wash your face, feet and umm, nether region.

    My tomatoes were like HEDGES! I never got anything off of them though, because everybody could still reach every last tomato on those darn plants.

    WOAH WOAH WOAH., Sorry had to break in here.....Spectracide is good. Round up is the safest herbicide you can use. It dissapates within an hour of applying. You do not use it before a rain otherwise it will wash away. If it gets in water it will not kill fish. It is a specific herbicide and only an herbicide. Spectricide contains bromine which kills fast\, but can have long term effects taht can be bad having animals

    thats why I said Bad stuff!, but sometimes if you are having an issue w/ bad plants...(we had poison oak&ivy growing from the neighbors unkept mess to our yard)..I know about the Keep away from animals thing...definitely don't want them around for awhile, I wasn't sure in what application MC was needing it for...just need to get rid of some grass...or have some weeds in the garden...really don't wan to use spectracide in the garden, Like Chad said, stays for awhile.[​IMG]
