Verdun, I saw the photos of your beautiful garden, which was very tidy. But, do you have to do the housework and cooking and go out to work? I don't do the last, retired.
So long as the veg garden grows food, I don't mind and I put weed supressant fabric over as much as possible, which helps keep moisture in as well in our hot summers. I prefer the flower garden to be tidy, but there just aren't enough hours in the day if I want to do other things too.
