While we got a weeding tool that looks pretty cool and was given rave reviews by our friend CH, the weeds are pretty deeply rooted and really hard to dig up. The best way we’ve found to deal with it is to just go through and mow them down with the weed whacker. It would be even better to just use the mower, but it would be a bear to get into the garden and then move around. The weed whacker is a little more work, but works fine, at least until the weeds come back.
For now, the garden looks like a garden instead of a tropical rain forest. Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Enzo Forciniti for the pic.
