We had to engage in an intervention and a major crackdown on the weeds ;)
The winter of 2011 was fairly mild, very little rains, temperatures in the 60's in December I did not expect weeds to be a big problem. (Hey I also invested a lot of time in putting down close to 4 inches of mulch). I wish my plants are half as resilient as the weeds out here.
Not stepping out into the garden for a month was a big mistake, the weeds had literally taken over the yard. Over a half day and some sore hamstrings later, the weeds are all out for now.
