Grass and weeds in vegetable garden

Asked April 26, 2018, 12:45 PM EDT

Hi, weeds and grass start growing before I plant my vegetable seeds and plants. Besides pulling the weeds/grass how can I safely get rid of them? Thanks. Kathy

Or, till again just prior to planting. Weeds are very easy to disrupt while small.

Hi Dennis, http://www.ces.ncsu.edu/depts/hort/hil/hil-8101.html is no longer available. Any other info you can send would be appreciated. Thanks, Kathy

Try http://www.scnow.com/living/home_and_garden/article_8ad7373a-5395-11e7-bb56-2774a72aa130.html However, when they are so small simply raking the top 1/2 inch of soil will kill them.

I don't know what happened to the first link, I can't get it now either.
