I had not been to my community garden for almost two weeks since we had a few days of rain. The weeds took off in the meantime and I spent an hour pulling bindweed and California grass. I never made it to the ivy gourd that has overtaken the chili pepper and is trying to climb my Satsuma tree. There is more rain forecast for today.
It is nice to have summer rain, but I have a hard time keeping up with the summer weeds.
My other plots are not faring any better. The herb garden has nut sedge between the brick pavers and I have plants that have reseeded from other gardens and from the herbs straying into different sections and in the pathways.
At home, I seriously need to weed whack before I get a nasty letter from the HOA.
So, much to do, but I try to work outside in the early morning and evenings since it is way too hot to be out in the sun in midday.
BTW I have some chronic problems getting rid of some weedy trees.
Anyone got any ideas on how to get rid of African tulip, Fukien tea, desert honeysuckle, and mock orange. I keep cutting the tops off but they grow back. African tulip has come back after roundup and I cannot dig it out, the root is too big and too deep.
