Weeding, the never ending job

in the live's of mj4

Lately I almost always feel like I am on a precipice with our garden just barely holding on from falling off the edge.  First it was water, then planting, now weeds.  I always feel like there are more weeds that need to be dealt with.  Fortunately we have continued to learn more and more about how to do this efficiently.  We use a combination of tilling, hoeing and hand weeding to keep our plants clear of weeds.  See the videos below for more details.
