Help! Weeds and Clover have taken over!
My husband and I just purchased an 11 acre farm this past March. It has a lovely prepared spot to garden, but we are very amateurs at this and we are in a pickle with the weed issue we are facing. The previous owners planted clover to enrich the soil with nitrogen and we planted late, so the clover is a big issue for us because it went to seed. Plus we have this grassy weed that has taken over and choked off everything we worked so hard to plant and we're overwhelmed. We see other gardens in the area that don't have weeds, or farmers with entire fields of corn with clear soil under the stalks. What are they doing that we didn't? My husband is working on the weekend mornings to put out weeds and he is making some progress and we've laid down some landscaping fabric on pathways, but for next year, I'd like to have a better plan even if it means redesigning the entire garden.
