Weeding All Around the Farm

Now that so many of us are spending more time at home this summer, we can tackle all those pesky garden weeds.

Weeds in the garden are inevitable - left alone, so many of them quickly overtake healthy flowers, plants, and vegetables, stealing their sunlight, water, and soil nutrients. Here at my Bedford, New York farm, the weeds are quite rampant this year, and we're all trying hard to keep up with their rapid growth. This week, my outdoor grounds crew spent every day weeding. It's a tedious job, but a necessary one to keep the gardens looking their best.

Enjoy these photos. And please read a wonderful New York Times article on weeds written by my friend and former Editorial Director at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Margaret Roach. It is interesting and very informative - just click on the highlighted link. Also go to her web site, AWaytoGarden.com for more information.
