I am amazed at how fast the weeds are growing this year. But then, bet I say that every year…. I start weeding at one end of the garden and by the time I finish, there are big weeds at the far side again and I have to start over.
As I remember, this weed phase is a late June/early July thing – the summer solstice weed race. Soon the vegetable plants will be big enough to shade the weeds. In late July/August, the weeds will wind down their growth spurts as all of the plants move to making seeds and fruits.
But I think this after photo does show a fully weeded summer solstice garden (except for that far right corner). (snap quick) Thank goodness for photos!
