and I would give up completely, but it still grows!
Again, this spring, I dutifully cleaned out my little 6 by 12 garden, raked up the dirt and planted seeds of varying kinds. I did some watering and after a week or so, things began to sprout. Unfortunately, most of the sprouts were weeds, plain and simple. I considered pulling them out, but I have a hard time distinguishing between real plants and weeds... and they were literally everywhere... not many spaces in between!
So, I left the garden alone, just watched it grow out the window... and then.... I spotted what appeared to be plants, growing in rows! I ran to the garden and yes, there are some lettuces, some cilantro, some dill, some kale! I am thrilled and thought that now that I had definite plant life to work with, I could pull out the weeds. Problem is, those weeds now look like a nice patch of grass. And when I tried to pull them out, out came all the dirt AND some of my delicate plant-life!
I have come to the conclusion that I will leave things as they are, pick my lettuce and kale and herbs that the rabbits leave for me... and when that's done, I will begin again.... Anybody know how to rid an entire garden of weeds so you can replant and really grow veggies? Input is appreciated!
