Summer 2011: a good one for weeds

If you missed me while I was gone, I was weeding. We've had a hot summer with sufficient moisture to allow weeds to go crazy. It's a draining process: heat, humidity, and the Sisyphean futility of trying to stay ahead; for every two weeds I remove or kill, three take their place. I know there's hope though. Parts of my own garden are quite clean and whole section of the Asian Collection are adequately attended to with a weekly walk through. Still, considering parts of China Valley, Korean Hill, and much of my back garden, it's occasionally overwhelming.

Sounds very familiar. In summer I'm thinking about staying on top of managing the weeds and winter is a chance for eradication...maybe.
