i have been spending all my spare time in our garden, too. taming those weeds is no joke! we had years of leaves naturally mulching, plus some weedcloth/cardboard, whatever and it all burned off last summer. along with our drip sprinklers. so not only is the mulch gone, but now we have to water everything - and the weeds love it. boo. but this year the garden is already looking so much better. now if the weather would decide what it is doing.... that would help me a lot!
