Weeding their garden is many gardeners’ least favorite part of growing their own food. However, it is a very important part of keeping your plants healthy and competition free. Here are some tips on how to make weeding your garden a bit more manageable:

  • Weed early and often, if you don’t it will quickly become harder to manage and will take much longer to complete
  • Try to remove the weeds before they go to seed, otherwise, in a few weeks you will have a lot more to deal with
  • When pulling out weeds, pull out their roots, or else they will just grow back again
  • Use mulch to help prevent weeds
  • Weeds can be easier to pull out of damp soil
