Weeds compete with your plants for nutrients and water. I've been hand-pulling pretty regularly to keep it clean. I will need to get back on it soon since we've had a rainy week.
In between the rain and the weeding there's always reading! Here are some of my favorite garden reads for kids.
|Sharon Lovejoy's classic!|
|Miss Maple's Seeds|
|A Seed is Sleepy|
And be sure to check out Jane Goodall's Roots and Shoots Organization for some great community projects.
