How do I get the weeds out of my vegetable garden? – Low Calorie Diets Tips

It’s a well-known fact that weeds are unsightly, troublesome plants.

On lawns, they disrupt the lush, green carpet effect we’re trying to achieve. Even worse are the weeds that invade vegetable gardens, where they reduce yield and produce quality.

Weeds compete for available moisture, nutrients, sunlight and acreage. They also serve as shelters for insects, alternative hosts for disease, and hiding places for rodents and snakes.

Weed control is an important step in maintaining a productive vegetable garden. There are several ways to keep weeds under control.

Be careful with soil amendments. Although manure is a good source of fertilizer, it also contains weed seeds. Compost manure before applying it to your garden plot. Plant plants at the correct depth in soil that has been tested and limed appropriately. Vegetables that get a healthy start in good soil can often suppress weeds with rapid growth and heavy vegetation shading the ground. Vegetables that are good at suppressing weeds through shading include beans, squash, tomatoes, potatoes, squashes, sweetcorn, and cucumbers.
