Major Weeding Job
I am moving into an apartment that has access to a pretty decent sized garden. The dimensions of it would be about 15' by 25'. The major downside: it's been neglected for years and has been overrun by weeds. All growth above ground is brown and appears to be dead. I have no experience with weeds in this part of the country and so can't speculate about what they are. Some reach maybe four feet in height. I need to find a way to get rid of them; but, as I plan on growing vegetables, I need to avoid chemicals at all costs. What would you advise? I am perfectly happy to put spade, hoe and rake to good use, but I don't know how far down I'll need to dig to eliminate roots.
