One of the good things about this way of patchwork gardening is that it leaves very little of the soil bare, so not many weeds are able to take hold. I have one or two problems with ground elder, but that too is mostly left unless it becomes too invasive, and spurge, which seems to predominate. is easily removed.
Although I enjoy gardening, I don't want it to become too much of a chore - this way the plants do most of the work for me, keeping the ground covered and keeping the weeds out.
