2) Suppress Weeds with Mulch
Protect your plants from pesky, nutrition siphoning weeds! By spreading around a 1-2 inch layer of mulch in your vegetable garden or flowerbed, you’ll help save your little guys from the devastation of weeds. It won’t protect against weeds entirely, but it will certainly decrease the amount that you’ll have to pull. Make sure that you use mulch that is chemically untreated!
