Just because it’s organic doesn’t make it less lethal. Ask anyone who’s eaten a nightshade plant (Atropa belladonna). Oh, wait, you can’t; they have been put to good use as organic fertilizer for daisies. The same holds true for weeds if you find what’s toxic/lethal (even clean water can be lethal if you use enough of it). Anyway, using organic herbicides can be better for the environment, especially if they break down easily after application but not too fast (DIE WEEDS, DIE). I found one called Nature’s Avenger Organic that uses natural citrus oil to strip a plant of its cuticle (waxy coating) and forces it into a state of dehydration. Hey, killing by lack of water; I have come full circle. In any case, it will kill just about any weed, including nightshade. And, as an added bonus, it smells citrus-y.
