When we moved in, there was a weed patch / former flower garden area in a half-circle at the west end of the house. This summer, we threw some old veggie and nasturtium seeds into it, with mixed results, but didn’t really do much other than try to keep the weeds down.
Our efforts at keeping the weeds down was, as you can see, mostly a failure.
So, today we ripped out all of the remaining plant matter, raked, and moved the brick outline to make it easier to mow the grass next summer. Take that, weeds!
