Pretty much what I am expecting to see here if I ever go out again.

We bought early for exactly that reason. I'd still like to add a few more but we are in good shape for our small garden.

My garden is a grouping of small raised beds, each bed's shape is defined by a 2x6 cedar board that forms the outline. Between each of the beds there is a crushed gravel path. Yesterday morning I sprayed some extended release weed killer. The crab grass and weeks have been trying to overtake the gravel paths. I put an end to that with the ground clear. It should do the trick.

Our garden is still not planted.

We had 2 nights of freezing temps in the past 7 days. We will be planting NEXT week, probably looking to start on Monday or Tuesday. Until then it is RAIN. Started this morning. Not supposed to end until Sunday evening.

"We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion:
the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases,
while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage
of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force."
