Recently on social media sites we have been seeing a lot of people touting the use of Acetic acid (a.k.a. Horticultural Vinegar) as a substitute for 'traditional' herbicides. Many people are unaware of the truth about Acetic acid and mistakenly think it is the same as the vinegar you put on your salad.

Fall is one of the best times to manage your noxious weeds. For perennials like Canada thistle, Dalmatian toadflax, and Leafy spurge, fall applications of herbicide are very effective as the plants begin to move resources to the roots. Target both the established plants and any newly emerging seedlings.
Fall is also the time to get a head start on managing your biennial weeds like Musk thistle, Diffuse knapweed, and Common mullein. Focus on the newly emerging rosettes. They can either be removed (including the top couple inches of the root) or treated with herbicide.
By working this fall, you can significantly reduce the number of weeds next spring.
