Now for some macroweeding.

I’m trying to make a new herb garden. The old one was further away, shady, and infested with oak roots.

I have been working on eradicating all the weeds from this area, but I know that’s impossible. Two years ago I put black plastic over the central part. A very effective method, but the outer parts still have a lot of root weeds ready to retake area. Then there are the seed weeds. Some survive the darkness under the plastic for years, others fly in anew.

So I’ve been rototilling, hand cultivating and weeding all summer, and still it doesn’t seem quite ready. I will however, as usual, prematurely start the rockery and planting this fall.
