I found a nut grass killer last year that worked pretty good. You have to find a licensed sprayer to order it for you. Sedge Hammer. Let me know if it works for you like it has for me. I still need to spray again this year but last year I was ready to give up.

It's been a little cooler here than usual, I think; low 90s instead of
high 90s, and still breezy most of the time.
The veggie garden looks pretty good. There is always one thing that
doesn't work out each year, this year it will be the cucumbers.
Apparently cucumber vines are a favored rabbit food. But I picked a
basket of green beans on Sunday - the foliage is so thick I didn't
realize they were that far along - I put up 18 jars of beans, woohoo!
The indeterminate tomatoes have grown higher than my head (not that I'm
real tall) and we have picked the occasional red one but the main crop
is a ways off. I'm gathering zucchini daily. The peppers have big fat
green peppers on them, the melon vines are rapidly conquering territory,
the onion foliage is thinking about falling over, and I'm waiting to see
how the corn did. In our climate pollination is a little iffy, I never
know how it's going to turn out.
I thought I had a guy lined up to help me with my weed problem out front
but I haven't heard from him in a week, so I'll call and see if he is
still interested. I discovered much to my dismay that one of the weedy
grasses out there is nut grass. I think I have every incredibly invasive
weed in the west! This is what comes of inattention. However the stuff
that's supposed to be there looks pretty good. The ptilotus "Joey" I
started is very pretty in bloom. I put plants in several different
locations to see what it likes. Doesn't get very tall but since it's
happiest in a border along the sidewalk that works out nicely. I will
look for it or it's relatives again.

How is everyone's gardening doing thus far this season. First of summer
here now. We had one warm rain after another with temps 7 degrees above
average in June. In short, it was hot and it was humid... like a trip to
Mobile without getting in the car.
My gardens have been the most lush they have ever been. No late frosts
time around. Plenty of moisture and warmth. So many plants bloomed ahead
schedule and all together there is not a lot out there right now. But,I
more of a foliage person than blooms, so all is well with me.
