This looks like a beautiful cover crop. Too bad it's just weeds:

I hoed out about 1/4 of it in 45 minutes this morning, but it's going to rain tomorrow, and I'm worried it will regrow faster than I can hoe it!
3 hours and a handful of blisters later, it's mostly gone:

You can't really tell from the photos, but the tomatoes on the lower left have perked up, so the rain was good.
