My weeds are mostly crabgrass which I find most problematic given how fast and thick it grows. The weed fabric I put down is not off to a good start. The 6″ staples I used to hold it down were working OK until all that rain yesterday really softened the ground up. Today I was fighting the wind getting under the weed fabric and pulling the staples out of the ground. Once the plants grow it won’t be a problem in that the plants will stop the wind at ground level, plus some of the plants will be growing on top of the fabric, but until then…..

I am leaving on vacation this Saturday for 10 days and think I’ve got to get it weighed down with rocks before I leave or it’ll be a complete disaster by time I get back.
