Since my old garden area was too depressing to work in I decided I needed a change. This year my garden will be in the orchard; which has its share of weeds too.
My first task was to water a small area to soften up the dirt. It was almost impossible to hoe weeds with the ground being so hard and dry.
Once all the tall dry weeds were cleared out things began looking better. I ended up with two piles of dry weeds awaiting to be burned.
After several days of watering the ground was finally soft enough for me to begin hoeing the green weeds and making rows for planing.
