Hi, I just read your August post and thought I'd add my two cents' worth! I'm now looking at a front yard full of weeds - I did try the spray-on weed killer, but it hasn't worked on everything so I will be out there (when it cools down this afternoon) with my gloves and bag and weedstick, digging them out by hand
oh well... on the bright side, the veggie garden is looking great!! We've been eating snow peas, beetroot, broad beans, snap peas, potatoes(!!), lettuce, kale and shallots! The tomato plants have a few flowers and the garlic is starting to dry up a little - yay! We've been picking strawberries, and the blueberry bush is laden with still-green berries and (if I can get to them before the birds) we'll be eating them pretty soon! Parsley, coriander, rosemary and dill are going strong, and my rhubarb and horseradish plants are growing well! It makes me happy to look around and see everything growing (except for the weeds that is) and knowing that what we are eating is the freshest it can be!
