It is possible to use  "Roundup" and  related weedkillers in the garden
if you need to by doing this.

Cut the bottom third off a 2-liter  soda bottle.  put the nozzle of the
sprayer in the mouth of the  bottle and put the open bottom over the
weed,  spray, way a few seconds and lift the  "applicator" away from the
week.   This confines the weed killer to the bad weed and keeps it away
from the good stuff.

For spider mites (and other nasty bugs), I use Safer's  Insecticidal
soap.  It can be used on veggies right up to day of harvest.
I have used it for years and it works.   Be sure and dilute it exactly
the way it says. (get the concentrate and not the small spray bottles,
saves money)
