So OK while the tomatoes are ripening and the green beans are climbing and the cukes are producing; I am weeding,weeding , weeding. Of course I expect weeds but this year the oxalis has been ridiculous.  The entire iris bed has been drowning in oxalis.

oxalis PLUS crab grass

Meanwhile the open spaces between the raised beds have been harboring multitudes of weeds.

spotted sedge

sassafras

purslane

rose of Sharon treelets

nut sedge

These weeds are the main offenders but there  are  plenty more in lesser amounts that add to the burden of this gardener.
