Weeding can be such therapy, if it isn't a sweltering hot and humid day. I really like pulling out the green intruders, watching the earthworms squirm to get out of the way of the roots being yanked from the ground. Having watched one garden be consumed by a very invasive weed, I am now rather determined and ruthless about weeding. Is it what I *want* to do? Absolutely not. But I am willing to spend time each weekend keeping the party-crashers at bay. It helps me stay connected to the garden in deep summer without risking any new plantings.
