A Patchwork Garden
One of the good things about this way of patchwork gardening is that it leaves very little of the soil bare, so not many weeds are able to take hold. I have one or two problems with ground elder, but that too is mostly left unless it becomes too invasive, and spurge, which seems to predominate. is easily removed.
Although I enjoy gardening, I don't want it to become too much of a chore - this way the plants do most of the work for me, keeping the ground covered and keeping the weeds out.
