Hi everyone! My husband and I are home gardeners. This is our second year of doing the big garden. (in previous years we have done 1 or 2 smaller containers)
We (thankfully) don't have a big issue with bugs, but the nutsedge is just driving us crazy. We spray with roundup weed killer and carefully pulling them out (making sure we get the little nut). My husband's friend owns TrueGreen and he told us the only thing that gets rid of nutsedge for good is Sedgehammer. We have read up on it (holy cow is it expensive!) and are concerned about using it around our other plants.
Anyone else battle this evil weed? Any different approaches to getting rid of it?
I attached a pic of our garden, well before everything really got going. This year we are growing sugar pearl corn, dragon's tongue beans, English Sweet Peas, Garden Green Beans, Soy beans, jalapenos, habeneros, Sweet bell peppers, radishes, plum tomatoes, yellow teardrop tomatoes, yellow and red striped heirloom tomatoes, Yellow and red onions, strawberries, horseradish, garlic, purple potatoes and carrots. In my herb garden I planted herbs that I use a lot, Greek oregano, Thyme, Tarragon, and Chives. I have in containers Rosemary and Lavender, mostly for decoration but I do cook with them on occasion.
We also have a concord grape vine that has just absolutely exploded in the past couple weeks and a peach tree (I cannot wait to make homemade peach jam!) which already has about a dozen baby ones on it.
