The Weedkiller's Daughter (1993) is the second album from John & Mary.

The Weedkiller's Daughter was produced by John Lombardo and Armand John Petrie and, like their first album Victory Gardens, features 10,000 Maniacs members Rob Buck and Jerry Augustyniak. Other contributors include Alex Chilton (Box Tops, Big Star), Canadian singer-songwriter Mary Margaret O'Hara, Bob Wiseman (Blue Rodeo), and English folk-guitar legend Martin Simpson.

The tracks "Angels of Stone" and "Cemetery Ridge" were songs that John Lombardo wrote during the last year he was part of 10,000 Maniacs. Cemetery Ridge was formerly known as "Thompson's March."
