  2. Great tip about the black plastic. I have used this and it does work well.

    Also helps keep the water in the ground longer for the plants to absorb and works well with soaker hoses.

    You still may get persistent little weeds that like to grow in the mulch, but they're easy to spot and pluck out because their roots can't get too deep.

  9. We used to use plastic, but now recycle our newspapers instead. The newspaper keeps the weeds at bay while also helping to preserve the moisture in the soil that the plants, and seedlings, need so desperately.

  10. Hi Rechelle,

    I have used newspaper and shredded paper. Both do work well and are great for the environment.

  17. Spring is bloom and I love the flowers that come along with it. The warm weather, the happy people, the blossoming of roses and sunflowers. Sunflowers have to be my favorite flowers. They are so happy reaching towards the sky. Their petals are like eyelids opening wide to look upon the great blue sky above. My mother makes the best cheesy cauliflower soup that I adore in the springtime. It's thick and creamy and I could easily eat gallons of it!
    Anyway, thanks for the giveaway!
