Master Gardener Tips June 15, 2023


By Anita Gall, Nebraska Extension Master Gardener

We have enjoyed the additional rain that we have received this spring, and so have the weeds! It seems like you pull weeds one day, and the next day you go back and there are more. It appears like you will never win the battle but don’t get discouraged, keep weeding. Look at the positive side. Moist soil makes pulling the weeds much easier, and know that for every weed you pull, you are eliminating the competition for water and nutrients for your plants. So off with their heads!
