My name is Stacey and I live in Washington DC. This is
the first year I have ever done any gardening.  I have
a small flower and herb garden at my house (a
semi-detached row house with a tiny yard) and I have a
small plot in the local community garden for my

I spent the afternoon today weeding and weeding - the
major problem I have with the community plot is that
it was neglected for a number of years so now there is
some poison ivy and porcelain berry growing along the
fence that abuts my plot.  I'm going to wait until
fall before I try digging out the porcelain berry and
I have yet to try and get rid of the poison ivy. I
know I can try "round up" but I'm unsure as to the
lasting affect on the soil.
