Cultivating Greens (page 2 of 2)

Mulching

Use a good mulch "or soil covering" to stop weeds around head lettuce plants, collards or plants in a single row. Hay, straw or other organic matter will stop most weeds except some stubborn perennials, which will grow through it. Pull those by hand.

Pull weeds when they're small. Don't even wait till they come up out of the ground. After a rain, which will cause some weed seeds to germinate, allow the soil to dry slightly and then lightly stir it up with your rake or weeding tool. You'll kill many weeds before they even appear.
