Weeds, weeds, and more weeds. Our mild winter here in Georgia has created a bumper crop of weeds in all my flower beds and especially my raised vegetable beds. I have tried Jamie's no till method of covering my beds with plastic to kill the weeds, but here in GA that only creates a haven for sugar ant and their infernal anthills and after loosing my entire strawberry crop to those sugar ants last year, pulling weeds it is for me. And as much as I don't really want to I'm going to have to treat the weeds and put down a pre-emergent to keep the weeds from taking over anything I plant this year. I'm in for at least 3 weeks of work before I even get a plant in the ground. Those homegrown tomatoes, cucumbers and jalapenos will be worth it later on!
