killing weeds in black trash bags
I pulled a bunch of weeds and wasn't very careful when I did and threw in a bunch of a plant that I'm trying to get rid of, but which seems to re-root and grow from any little bit, anywhere. I'd like to save the lot and use it in my own compost, but my pile doesn't get hot (too lazy, I guess) and I don't want to deal with it growing anywhere other than where it is already.
I took the bunch of them and tossed them in a large black trash bag hoping that the heat generated inside when the sun hit it would be enough to kill the plants. Think that;ll do it, or do I need to take a more careful approach (or put the whole lot in the city compost and be more careful next time LOL)?
Another thought I had was spraying everything with vinegar, but it might take a lot of vinegar and be more labor intensive than I'd like....
Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
