What a good idea about the soda bottles! I'm going to try it immediately! Yesterday I couldn't wait any longer and started my roof vegetable garden by sowing the first vegetables: cabbage turnip, peas, beans and celery. You can see how well timed your idea is!

Thanks Joan, it's a beautiful video! And yes, the first few images are of Schiedam. I don't live on reclaimed land - not recently reclaimed. It's a river estuary close to the sea; a thousand years ago people lived here on dry patches in the mud, as we still do, only much more comfortably. The bottom of this building is only 3 or 4 metres below sea level.

This is so clever, Joan.  I am going to try it.  My family uses lots of soda bottles.

@Chris Breman, You may not be a member of science and I posted a video about the Netherlands there. To be sure you see it, National Geographic Megastructures North Sea Wall
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yAoPphN4TOU
As I remember that area, it is very low country and a lot of water. Google Earth shows Schiedam
Netherlands very near the coast and lots of water canals. Beautiful scenes around the area, a very pretty part of the world. My goodness, the effort it has taken to reclaim the land from the sea. Do you live on reclaimed land?

Spud, that is my understanding: vinegar kills plants. In fact, I use it as a weed killer in my planting beds. 

Amer, thanks for that information. The test makes sense. 

Comment by amer chohan on January 31, 2013 at 10:34am

It is not that bad, only concentration of acid should not be very high. To be absolutly sure that it is harmless to the plant, a little water can be added to further lower the concentration.

A one leaf test before actual treatment could also be beneficial.

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 31, 2013 at 9:34am

Joan, I have heard vinegar can kill plants, so it may not be a good idea.
