When I was on top of my weeding
The vegetable garden of shame
I had mixed results on this resolution. I bought a Japanese garden hoe which was supersharp to make weeding easier. I love it because it makes weeding so much faster. However, you actually have to use it in order to keep the weeds at bay. I was really good in the spring at weeding. In July, when it got hot and I had to work all month, it was all over. The weeds took over by August and it was ugly. I couldn't face the jungle, so I hired my neighbor's granddaughter to weed for me. She's good, fast, and knows what she's doing. She was totally worth it!
