There is no shortage of weed in Washington!
And no shortage of weeds, either. Here you can see three photos that show how I spent my July 4th weekend ... Friday, the Crop Circle garden was covered in weeds up to eight inches tall.
The soil in that garden is so good (it's a no-till garden!) that weeds pull out easily by the roots. When the weeds start, I find it's easier to let them grow a bit before removing them. Due to my hectic life lately, though, the weeds grew taller than I would have liked.
Believe it or not, all this was cleared in about six hours of work. The result? A perfect Crop Circle garden. Now I can see my corn, zucchini, peppers and Scarlet Red Runner beans!
