Brad's Garden Growing Weeds and Veggies

When you first look at our station garden, you will probably think our main crop is weeds. Upon further inspection, you'll notice amidst all the weeds are healthy looking plants primed and ready to produce some yummy vegetables. So far we've already been harvesting kale, broccoli, yellow squash, onions, various herbs and peppers. Zucchini, tomatoes and green beans should be ready for harvest within the next couple of weeks.

Our garden is tended by a group of 10/11 staffers who enjoy eating homegrown produce. We all pitched in to till and plant earlier in the year. Now, we take turns watering and trying to "handle" the weeds in hopes of reaping some delicious rewards. With busy schedules, and water grass that just won't go away, the weeds seem to always get out of control, but we do our best to keep them away from the base of our wanted plants, at least. Does anyone have any tricks to put weeds at bay?

Bring on the delicious, nutritious, homegrown goodies!
