As the garden grows, so do the weeds. Act early before the problem gets totally out of hand. At the very least don't let the weeds go to seed. The book Maria Rodale's Organic Gardening (Rodale, 1998) has a chapter on fighting weeds that includes suggestions for getting motivated. The author suggests focusing weeding efforts on just one defined patch per session for a set amount of time. She also reports the best motivator of all is a deadline: invite your friends and family over for a Sunday afternoon barbeque and be amazed at how much weeding gets done in the morning.
