Lots of posts today, I know. I have some free time.
I love my garden. I love working in the dirt and caring for plants I know will yield beautifully delicious and nourishing food for my family within a short amount of time. I love watching these lovelies flower and grow and produce.
Another thing I chose to do, as you can see, is use newspaper and cardboard boxes for weed prevention. It works fabulously. When the growing season ends, I will till the naturally decomposing paper into the soil, mixed with composted chicken poop and some veggie compost. Yumma.
In certain areas I have used composted pine shavings and chicken poop to give my veggies an extra boost. Around my carrots, some corn and a cucumber plant that wasn't doing so well. They are all doing brilliantly now...in case you're wondering.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
