This is as much as I have cleared so far. I can hoe about one square foot and then my heart is beating fast and I have to rest. Not sure if I'll get it all hoed this spring. Although it is only 17 by 10 approximately.
I have strewn some dried grass around and put down black plastic over the grass that is still growing on part of the garden. The grass has deep roots and is hard to get out. I guess a normal person would rototill it.
The plastic will just remain until the grass underneath dies and thus will be easier to hoe. After a week of sunny summer weather, this week has been cold and wet.
