Do you use a hoe when weeding? My Dad and Grandma both used hoes & made quick work of their weeds. :)

I cracked up when I read that bit about weeds warranting being laughed at. So, then, when all else is dismal, doomful, down, one can always head out to the garden and find at least a few weeds.... SOMETHING to laugh about. (not to mention the relaxation factor helping to change one's perspective....)

Mrs. Horton,
Yes, a hoe is definitely the way to go with these weeds--hand-pulling would quickly get old! I either use the corner of a regular hoe (is this the way people normally use it?), or a pointed hoe. A 3 pronged hoe has been great also for very young weeds. Look at this post and all the different types of hoes-- I wonder which one your dad and grandma used?:)

Nick,
If what you suggest is true, I had quite the hilarious time yesterday. :)It was very invigorating to get 3 huge heaps of weeds dug. Now only half my garden is laughable.
