Health Tip – Apr. 13 – Three Tips for Gardening Allergies
If you love to garden but hate seasonal allergies, there are some simple steps you can take:
1. Garden later in the day. Pollen is released in the early morning hours, and by early evening, pollen is less likely to be near the ground.
2. Garden in the rain. On wet and humid days, pollen counts tend to be low.
3. Weed early and often. Pull weeds from your garden before they mature and produce pollen. Weekly light hoeing between plants can keep weeds from getting started in the first place.
