Time to start Weeding!

Controlling weeds can be one of the most time-intensive garden upkeep tasks. Weeds can grow quickly, crowding out garden plants in competition for light and nutrients. Removal is easiest when weeds are small and in moist soil when it takes less effort to grub out seedlings or pull young plants. With all of the recent rains, that time is now. Don’t wait until your weeds are developing seeds and the soil has dried out. Read this recent Marin IJ article to learn how to succeed at managing weeds. If you want to identify your weeds, consult the UC Integrated Pest Management Weed photo gallery, with its photographs and links to Weed identification tools.
