Weeding

With the mild weather and rain comes the weeds, ideal weather for weeding is rain in the night and then some good afternoon sun, as we got yesterday. Weeding in the vegetable garden is very different to that in the other areas of the garden because we grow everything in rows and so a Dutch Hoe is what I love to use most, the annual weeds can be cut off with the Dutch Hoe and collected up by hand, perennial weeds need to be taken out by the roots. Yesterday I worked in the fruit cage, most of the weeds problem in here are annual weeds so a large area was cleared, it is a great feeling at the end of the day when you look back at your work. You do not want to let the weeds compete with the crops so it is really a good idea to keep on top of the weed problem, start today.
