Quick Tip: Weeding when Wet

I find weeding to be a bit of a chore, something I have to do, not want to do. So anything that can make weeding quicker and easier is a plus.

I try and weed just after a rain or after watering. The ground is softer and the weeds for the most part come out very easily. They might just need a quick loosening with a cultivator, trowel or hoe.

I did that with this bed last Sunday just after a full day of rain on Saturday (the first real rain that we had in over two months!) It is a dirty job when you have to deal with wet soil but dirt does wash off!



Do you try and do weeding as well after a rain or watering? Do you find it much easier? Leave a comment below to share your weeding experiences.
