Weeding

It was a busy day of weeding onions. Predominant pesky plants include lamb’s quarter, galinsoga, and grass. But under the row covers, we’re also starting to see carpet weed, pigweed and purslane.

Of course, I made weeding challenging by intercropping beets with my onions. It should get easier once things grow a little larger.
