The best time to pull weeds is right after irrigating or a rainfall. It’s easiest to pull or dig weeds out in their entirety when the ground is soft. After weeds are pulled or dug out, remove them entirely from the garden. Some weeds can grow back or go to seed if left where they are. Keep weeds out of the compost pile unless you are able to maintain heat high enough to kill any weed seeds.
Your hands are often the best all-purpose weeding tools, but when you need a little more power, try one of these.
