We don't have morning glory in our lawn, but it is taking over our strawberries. Is there anything we can do? If we decide we'd rather get rid of the morning glory instead of saving the strawberries, will roundup get rid of it?

You can use roundup on the morning glory. A broadleaf herbicide would also kill the morning glory but right now it is too hot to use it safely. Either of these products will work better if you wait until the weather cools off in late September. At that time you could also safely spray a broadleaf herbicide. When you do spray, you might try teasing loose some of the morning glory vines and laying them out on a thick piece of newspaper to protect the berry plants and brush on the herbicide. That way you might be able to save your strawberries. Make sure you do not remove the newpaper from underneath the morning glory until the herbicide on the vines is completely dry. No matter which chemical you choose, you will probably need to treat the area for more than one year.

- I have a small backyard that has a house on the west and north side, a cinder block wall on the east side and a large tree shading a portion on the south side. Due to the high sides of our yard, we tried some part shade/part sun plants last year. But they got blasted in the heat. Our yard doesn't get 10 hours of sunlight but it gets very hot. Can I sucessfully grow a vegetable garden in part of it up against the houses and plant something along the cinder block wall - preferably grapes or raspberries, or other covering plants (can be non-fruit). Can you recommend a plant we can grow along the wall, both in the shaded and sunny parts? Any recomendations for better use of the space?
