Controlling weeds

The best time to control weeds is when the weed seeds are just germinating, before they establish a root system. A straight-tined rake controls weeds well if you use it immediately after seeding or transplanting and about once each week until vegetable plants cover the soil. Also cultivate when the soil dries out after it rains. A well-constructed wheel hoe can help keep weeds under control.

In well-prepared soils, you do not need to cultivate more than 1 to 2 inches deep to control weeds.
