Weed Your Garden Day – June 13th

Break out the cupcakes and balloons and get ready to celebrate Weed Your Garden Day on June 13th.

The thrill of the party may wane a bit when family and friends discover your true motivation.  But, adding a festive spirit to garden tasks can make it more fun and you’re more likely to make them happen.

Try a round robin of eating and weeding with friends.  It is a great way to work in some social time and help each other tackle the weeds in the garden.

Barter a bit of weeding for a home cooked meal, pie, photography or other hobby or skill you prefer over weeding.

Hire some help – it’s ok to admit the weeds won this round.  Once under control, it will be easier for you to keep up with weeding and other garden care.

Once the garden is weeded, mulch it to reduce future weed infestations. Shredded leaves and evergreen needles are perfect for flowerbeds and vegetable gardens.

A bit more information:  Woodchips and shredded bark make nice mulch around trees, shrubs and pathways.  Do not put fabric weed barrier beneath these and other organic mulch.  As the mulch decomposes it provides a great environment for weed seeds to sprout and grow through.
