March 2, 2013 — Love to garden, but hate having to battle weeds? Mike McGrath ends your weed woes with a little trick we call the Stale Seed Bed. Plus your fabulous phone calls!
My Significant Other and I are at odds when it comes to weedingāI am a weeder and he is not-though he thinks he is. I remove weeds down to the roots, and then loosely rake the area to loosen up any remaining roots I may have missed. My Better Half uses the āGrab and Yankā method, leaving many roots in the ground. Then he tosses what he rips out over the fence, scattering any seeds the weeds may have developed to regrow and blow back over into our garden. He insists they donāt regenerate, and I donāt see how they canāt. Now, he is an avid composter, organic through and through and I love him dearlyābut it has gotten to the point where we canāt be in the yard at the same time while Iām weeding because heāll offer to āhelpā. Mike: Pleeeeasssse set one or both of us straight on weeding! Get the answer Ā»
