However, in the rest of the garden… the edges of the beds are getting over-run with weeds:
And it’s making me crazy! As a lazy gardener, who gets eaten alive by the ubiquitous mosquitos at this time of year, I can’t spend too much time out there weeding without getting covered in bites. Yet, looking at my poor veggies being over-run with crabgrass, arrowleaf tearthumb, asiatic dayflower andclover is so depressing!
This Fall, I’m definitely putting the garden to bed with a heavy layer of hay and in the Spring, I will “tuck in” all my garden beds with a nice thick layer of hay to keep the weeds at bay. Actually, I should probably order some hay right now (we get it from, Castle Hill Farm) so I can save myself weeding for the rest of the summer.
Do you have any secrets to keeping weeding to a minimum? I would love to hear them.
