When I was a kid, I hated pulling weeds in my mom’s huge garden, but looking back now…my mom had an awesome garden! I am not the one in the family that inherited her green thumb!
Last year was the first year I tried planting some veggies of my own. It worked out pretty well – had tomatoes, chives, peppers and basil. A good start!
Today, I was reminded that when you’re readying an area to start planting, you don’t have to pull the weeds by hand! You can use a shovel to get out the deep roots and use a rake to break up the ground and loosen the weeds!
Get rid of weeds the easy way…rake them up! Then get ready to plan your planting!
This year, I’m going to try a few more…beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, squash, carrots, chives, parsley and some lettuce! Bonus! Maybe one doesn’t have to be BORN with a green thumb… :-)
