 :bow:.....nice radishes.......mine aren't quite big enough yet. Have you ever had problems with Flea Beetles? I have to cover mine with very fine netting to keep them off. Otherwise they look like they were shot with buckshot .

Two days of digging weeds and they don't look too bad.  What do you guys do, keep constant watch and attack any weed that comes up or like me, wait until you can't see the plants and then give it hell for a day or so. I should have taken a before picture but it was too embarrassing  :rotflmao:

Lookin' good deadeye!  :happy1: I operate along the same lines. After it annoys me enough I get after it and clean it up. Getting about to that point here right now. Nothing like it used to be so not as time consuming. I actually need to transplant some of the weeds into some pots for a display I got talked into.   :confused:

when and if i'm at home I usually spend an hour or so a night going thru the garden weeding. thats provided I don't have anything else I feel is more pressing.

going out in the garden pulling weeds is therapy for me, takes my mind off things.

The raised beds, I just pick weeds as I water. Never really got overrun.

The bigger gardens, I plant them far enough apart that I can run the tiller in-between.

Aaaaannnnnddddd......preen helps with the other weeds.

I'm not completely sold on preen! :scratch: don't those weeds reroot and grow again?? I've always been under the impression if you don't get the root, they grow back. But then running a tiller a few extra times isn't a big deal and it keeps the ground loose for the root system.

I wonder how much it would help you if you spent a few more hours a day doing this? I bet some members would give you some therapy at little or no charge.

Glenn must've been the only one that lived tho!  :evil: Sorry, couldn't resist. Garden looks pretty darn nice glenn. Just weeded the snot out of ours yesterday and finally got the mater cages on. Need to get some early maturing string beans planted yet today before it rains.

First year in about 36 that we don't have a garden, in fact, yesterday I mowed the weeds down that are growing there.
Funny thing is the warden and I don't seem to miss all the weeding a darn bit. I will have to raid someone's garden when I need tomatoes.....

Bummer Art. Those were some purty mean maters you used to raise. Funny how not missing the labor part of it works. I keep threatening to tear up a hunk of pasture close to the house but I think I can forget about that anytime soon. I sprayed the pasture with Milestone for thistles a few weeks back. Any broadleaf fruit or vegetable probably wouldn't grow in there for a year even if I did. Killed the thistles tho!  :happy1: If I get some decent maters yer certainly welcome to them.

Between the wet spring and her mom dying and my mom being in the hospital more than not we were overwhelmed and just never got it done. We will get back into it but not on the scale we were at before. I know we will miss some of the fresh produce but there is always friends and the farmer's market.
