conditioning of plants by the removal of weeds and debris
Successful organic weed control is achieved by keeping and keeping your garden free of weeds and debris. The more earthworms there are in the soil, the better; it promotes air circulation, proper drainage, and helps keep fetches and vermin away from the soil. Earthworms do not feed on the plant so the weeds and plant parts should be removed as soon as possible if they are of no use and human weeds can be dug out by hand. I usually try to remove them by hand if it is a job that I may have to do. If the land is one that is prone to continuous rain, I will dig out all the weeds and let the fallen leaves and other debris settle for a while before covering up the plants with mulch or black plastic.

A vegetable garden’s most irritating recurrent weeds are clover, vetch, chickweed, dandelions, arstead,adders, spacions, buttercups, etc. They are easily removed but sometimes arise in numbers that are difficult to tackle. It is important to keep a regular rotation on the vegetable garden and not plant the same vegetables in the same spot for more than two years. The easiest way to avoid these weeds is to grow potatoes.

Chickweed  สล็อตเว็บตรง weeds debris

There is some doubt as to whether chickweed is a weed or not but in any case it is best where tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and similar leaf crops are grown to prevent the lavender putting its pink/purple flowers in the way of these crops.

The other advantage of preventing chickweed from growing is that it makes the space for the other vegetables much more enclosed so the problem does not arise.

clipping:  weeds debris

I try to clip or corral suckers that might grow from carrots, cucumbers, etc. and any co-crops. If I am forced to clip, I try to do so as early as possible in the season. Leaving the suckers on the parent plant simply creates a new generation of the problem.

Mulching over the season weeds debris

Throughout the growing season, keep mulching materials in the vegetable garden to prevent weeds from forming into larger structures or expanding rapidly. By creating a fine mulch of compost or using something like Putty but ensure not to cover plants as it may smother them or result in rot.   weeds debris

Contact your local council’s Environmentalitivity Team if you need to use a weedkiller.

Hoeing  weeds debris

Most vegetable gardens are likely to be heavily watered throughout the summer season. This is especially true of those grown ingarden planters. I often use the old tactic of digging or roto-tilling mid-summer to keep the soil well aerated. If you are someone who does not like to till, neither do I! Gardening is much kinder to the soil than to the gardener. So if you hate working in the soil, then get a good weather structure, like a raised vegetable bed-fall or cold frame-and let the sun do the work!

If you choose to use a weather structure, like a cold frame, it is essential that you secure it to a wall or fencing to provide the necessary protection from the wind. You may have to fender a patio or piece of fencing to contain its excess weight.

If you are going to use a weather structure, it is best to site it against a south facing wall and bud away from it at around 45 degrees.  weeds debris

Planting and harvesting  weeds debris  weeds debris

It is so much easier to handle plants when they are a little smaller, but as you get the hang of it, you will notice that plants and dirt is not the only thing that will get bigger. Lettuce and peas can grow as much as four times their width, and four footers are not uncommon.  weeds debris

As your plants grow, you will need to help them out by parking the car in a convenient spot and Feeding & Watering the plants. Placing two cups of Nutri-Cure fertilizer in the bottom of your plants’ containers will help loose the nitrogen rich soil and replenish it with vital nutrients. Remember that you must not allow any of the fertilizer to come in contact with the bulbs or leaves of the plants, or they will burn. Many of the liquid fertilizers available have water in them that you can use as foliar feeding. They can be sprayed on the leaves or applied directly to the roots.

Directly applying fertilizer can be a real challenge. You have to be careful not to spill it or be tempted to use it by accident. You will also want to be sure to only use the right amount of fertilizer.  weeds debris 

Composting  weeds debris

Composting is another area where you will find your time is being better spent. Composting is the process of combining organic material such as grass clippings, leaves and food waste with your yard waste such as sawdust and wood chips.
