This guide is a great quick-reference resource for home gardeners and provides a lot of information on weeds in a relatively space.

The Grow Green program, which is a joint program of Extension and the City of Austin Watershed Protection Development Review, has produced a free guide on weeds that's available to anyone with an interest in gardening. It's a nice, full-color publication with lots of useful information for home gardeners.

If you pick a fresh bell pepper, for example, and look at the nutrient content right away versus put it on a shelf for two weeks and then look at the nutrient content, it's dropped a lot in various aspects.

The local produce is the best way to get the highest nutrients content from your vegetables because these things just naturally break down after harvest and time.

The guide was developed to give people a concise resource for identifying the most common weeds in home landscapes and choosing the most effective and least toxic weed-control option.
