I'm drowning in an overgrown garden!!
This year I ventured to spend lots of time and money to plant this gigantic vegetable garden. My big successes were the tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, beets, watermelons, spinach/lettuce, and various squashes. My radishes, pumpkins, peas and beans did NOT do well at all. So I guess it was a success, the problem IS WEEDS!!! Everywhere that is NOT vegetable garden is completely covered in weeds!! Since our underground sprinklers didn't work this year, we had to use a big spreader sprinkler, and it made weeds grow everywhere else. So now that we're moving & need to get our yard/house ready to sell, WHAT DO I DO??? All these weeds represent hours and hours of backbreaking labor! I went out in the yard this evening for some intensive pulling, and it didn't even put a dent! I simply can't do all of this with Jeff working such long hours (he won't touch the yard besides watering it) and me being 7 months pregnant. ANY suggestions on inexpensive hardworking lanscaping people who can get my yard in ship-shape?? Just the thought of everything involved in moving and selling the house sets me in panic attacks. So suggestions and help would be much appreciated!!
