I love the garden in late spring, before the weeds take over. I am still promising myself that I will stay ahead of the weeds. This is the best year I have ever had with keeping the weeds down. Hopefully I can keep it up. I am at the point now where I can hoe the garden in less than one hour. If I stay with it and keep hoeing at least once a week I should stay on top of the weeds. Now if I could just do something with the path.
