Clever Gardening Technique

Mulch with Weeds
As you pull up young annual weeds like lamb's-quarter and pigweed in your vegetable garden, toss them between plants or rows to use as mulch. The plant material will break down and add organic matter. Remove perennial weeds that might resprout. And if any weed is starting to flower, remove that from the garden, too. The plant may continue to develop seeds even after it's pulled.
