I thought it was 1 TBSP. of Ammonium Sulfate to 1 Gallon of Roundup.  
Also, I heard if you add a little bit of dish soap, it will give the 
mixture a water-repellant effect in case it rains.  This solution killed 
my weeds in a flash!

And, a word on bunnies.  My cottontail has become a part of the family.  
We even have pictures that monitor his growth from tiny bunny to "kid" 
bunny.  He only nibbles a little here and there.  I've been putting some 
hot pepper on his favorite flowers and that seems to deter him a bit.
