National Weed Your Garden Day

Dandelion, National Weed Garden Day holiday

Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always observed on June 13th

Today is Weed Your Garden Day. ....as if we are not already spending copious amounts of time attacking the weeds in our gardens!

Left unchecked, weeds will choke out many garden flowers and vegetables. At the very least, the competition they give for sunlight, water and nutrient, will cause your plants to be less productive. The purpose of this special day, is to spend an extra 5-10 minutes weeding your garden. When I found out about this goal, I just laughed! An extra five or ten minutes would barely put a dent in a garden my size. But, 'ya never know, this might be just the incentive some garden procrastinators need, to get out and pull the weeds. 

Are you ready to participate in this special day!? Then, go out to your garden and start pulling those pesky weeds. By definition, a weed is any plant that is unwanted in your garden. This definition includes plants that are otherwise edible, serve medicinal purposes, and those that produce flowers. Some examples of edible weeds are Dandelions and Purslane. We all know that milkweed has medicinal benefits. But, we do not want them in the garden. And, then there are many colorful wildflowers that make their way into our vegetable gardens, where they are considered weeds.

Why is it that weeds grow more prolific than our garden flowers and vegetables? Right now, our gardens have been planted for a long enough time, that weeds are growing thickly and rapidly. Weeding is a daily chore. After your complete your weeding, lay down a thick layer of mulch, to suppress the growth of new seeds.

Weeding Tip: Soak the soil prior to weeding. It will be easier to pull the roots out.

The History and Origin of National Weed Your Garden Day:

Our research has yet to discover the creator of this special day, or why it was created. This is surprising, as this is a new holiday.

The earliest reference to this special day only dates to around 2015.

Like so many recent holidays, the title calls it a "National" day. However, we found no documentation supporting this to be a formal "National" day, which requires a presidential proclamation, or an act of Congress.
