DECATUR, Ill. (DTN) -- The weeds in my garden almost got the best of me this spring. I relaxed for a couple of days. It was that "I'll get them tomorrow" moment that has been costing me since.

Given a reprieve from the hoe, the spiny amaranth (a gift that keeps on giving from some compost I incorporated several years ago) grew from a seedling to a stalk sent from Satan. The 3-inch rain shower we received this week made a mixed greens salad of weeds go wild. Even the rabbits are having a hard time finding my strawberry patch.
