I got hit with a stomach bug on the 3rd. NOT fun. We did manage to drive up and visit with some family, and make some easy strawberries (idea from Pinterest!)
and you wanna see what I did with my garden this year?
I took a big roll of the brown paper they sell at home improvement stores and covered up the weeds,
then put about $16 of mulch on top of it. Do you know that in our experiment, the newspaper is actually doing a better job of preventing weeds than the expensive landscape material? Pffff to the expensive material. We’re doing brown paper and newspaper all the way next year, baby!
There is a lone tomato plant, but that’s it for this summer! I didn’t have the energy with all that’s going on around here, and I got sick of looking at the weeds. And, on a last note, this was a $7.50 purchase from Target this morning:
I updated my top referring blogs over on my left sidebar….thank you so much to each of you that send someone to 320.
