    Everything on this Earth is made of the Earth, what man does is not unnatural. Under specified circumstance combinations of chemicals men create, can happen naturally.
    It all depends on the desired effect. ‘Synthetic’ has, to some, undesired effects, however ‘Organic’, to some, has undesired effects.
    Global warming cause by man created pollution is bull sh!t. Just something else to exploit. So quit your gay hippie talk, agricultural advanced support the world today in a way ‘natural’ couldn’t.

    the newspaper companies switched to safe soy ink some time ago…Im organic and I don’t use the newspaper in composting or gardening however we have a recycling program here that eats it all up.

    No, weeds do not rob moisture and nutrients. As long as another
    plant or weed is not choking it out then your OK. Modern gardening
    is all about profits and aesthetics which is destroying the natural environment with erosion and chemicals. Exposed soil gardens
    destroys important microbes, fungi and bacteria.

    The best tomatoes I ever grown where sown down the middle
    of a weed patch. And I only watered them once.
    The weeds covered the ground and kept the soil

    Great idea with the newspapers, but how do you water the plants, then?

  • afype says:

    Water will go right thu the paper at a slow rate. This also keep the roots moist and helpsd on the dry days.

    I have a part of my garden where I have a bunch of dandelions growing :) I love dandelion greens in my salads and smoothies! Thanks for writing about edible weeds!

  • StraddleCreekSoap says:

    I’ve done the newspaper weed control. It definitely helps, but be aware that the newspaper breaks down long before the end of summer, so repeat mulching is useful.

  • teddyd30 says:

    Do you know of a site that tells you which major newspapers are printed with soy?

    Also, great video. You are well spoken and obviously knowledgeable.

  • gloorbit says:

    Newspaper printed black only is safe yeah? It’s carbon black in an oil vehicle. On the other hand color printing, which includes cyan, magenta and yellow inks, adds many harmful chemicals doesn’t it?
    I’m not talking about the vehicle which can be petroleum based or vegetable based. I’m talking about the chemicals used to create the color(pigments) which are suspended in soy oils.

    Often times you can go to your local paper and get what are called “butt rolls”. Use them instead. No ink involved.

    Newspaper isn’t organic.

  • HTCSWEOD says:

    Nice video… earth worms eat the news paper super fast, then you benefit from the worm castings and soil water absorption is improved by the worm tunnels :) Rather than news paper, I use grass clippings… grass clippings allow me to walk on a garden that would be inaccessible after a rain or during rainy weeks which would otherwise allow weeds to gain ground when you can’t get to your garden plants. YES! never use poison, nor chemicals. I also allow chickens to defoliate the plot first.

  • meganschannel4321 says:

    I am still questioning the newspaper.. ALLOT of people use newspaper, but I don’t know what the ink is made of. Anyone have any information on using newspaper and what can be a replacement? Thanks!

  • RogerCantona says:

    Was going to ask about the effect of the ink from the newspaper… What effect does that have?

  • realriders68 says:

    I’m pretty sure most newspapers use non toxic ink. I would stay away from the paper with a shiny gloss to them though. Most ink used now doesn’t contain heavy metals, I believe.

  • 007westleysadler says:

    I’ve tried this before. It makes a huge, ugly mess.

  • glowbuggie says:

    how do you fertilize the plants when they’re all covered with the newspaper, i.e the pellet slow release food??

  • intermender says:

    Yes, but if that stuff were toxic, wouldn’t people who read newspapers be dead by now?
