Let’s Spend 15 Minutes Weeding Today (Day 6 of 30 DTABG)

Weeding, I know, I know, it’s not the most glamorous garden job, but it must be done. Let’s all motivate by spending just 15 minutes weeding this weekend. You’ll be amazed at how much weeding you can get done if you power it out. Like we talked about earlier this week, ridding your veggie garden of weeds also gets rid of snails and slug habitats. Make it fun to see if you have any edible weeds growing in your yard – it’s so much fun to find things to eat that you don’t have to work at growing at all.

After you weed, you could try out a new mulch. Or just sit back with a cup of tea or glass of wine and enjoy the beauty of your hard work.

  1. I enjoy weeding. My veggie garden never gets bad. I pick a few weeds here and there every day whenever I see them. My other gardens can get quite unruly since I don’t look at them everyday. Those I find a nice hour long time to weed and just slowly work my way through. I find it quite relaxing. I have a friend that likes it so much she told her husband he wasn’t allowed to weed the garden. He could do any other chore, but the weeds were hers.

  2. I love weeding too! I sometimes weed my next-door neighbor’s beds just because it is such a satisfying chore. The results of your efforts are immediately evident and you get some contemplative down time to let your mind wander.

      I don’t mind weeding either. In fact when I take my boys over to the nearby school playground to play I usually end up weeding their beds too!
