Not weeding your garden can be detrimental to the overall state of your plants but it can also lead to devastating effects on your surrounding environment. Weeds are often invasive species which can have numerous adverse effects on an area.

The single most exhausting thing about maintaining a garden...weed pulling.

I know, I know. But they just keep coming, especially the bindweed, the ground elder, the couch grass etc. It's a never-ending task. But, hey ho.

I removed a bunch of weeds from around my garden... the space I had created was the opportunity needed by a *different* invasive weed to take over even worse than the first one had done. /sigh.

I personally don't like weeding, but it comes with the territory when I want to have a healthy garden full of friuts and vegetable. Thanks Cher
