This afternoon my children and I worked in our garden. We got most of the weeds under control and even got to start putting newspaper and straw down.
This is our third year to use this method of weed control and I sometimes wonder how we ever got along without using the newspaper and straw. Actually I do know, we had a weed fest and had to go hunting for our produce.
If you want to control weeds in your garden simply lay down newspaper in all the areas of your garden without plants and then cover the papers with straw.
I do recommend hoeing all of the weeds before you lay down the newspaper and straw. Otherwise, the weeds just might keep growing and poke right through the newspaper and straw.
