The dangers of these substances have been known for a long time, but they are quick and convenient ways of solving common problems and they make a lot of money. Chemical solutions (and I mean that in both meanings of the word solutions) to problems almost always have serious side effects and negative consequences.

panamint_patty: Most of the vegetables that are easy to grow in the desert aren't the ones I like the most. Setting up and tending a garden, keeping the plants safe from pests, and all that is a lot of work and it's fun on a small scale, but it doesn't save any money when it comes to buying groceries! Maybe in a different climate, but not in the desert!

LA bans Roundup
Banning substances like this makes perfectly good sense to me. I've never used Roundup and I never will!

twister: The channel is still at zero subs, but that's some great chamomile! It's too bad that more youtube viewers aren't impressed by chamomile. I'll try to leave a like on that video next time I sign in to youtube.

Artichokes
Very healthy looking plants. Definitely worth a try!
According to Dave's Garden artichokes need soil that is slightly acidic. So, the soil the artichoke in the video is growing in must have been heavily amended.
