Megan suggested laying down newspaper to suffocate the weeds and grass. I'm figuring all the bad news in the news will keep them from coming up. :o)
So today I laid out newspapers where the weeds and grass were the worst in hopes that it will die soon. Then next spring it will just get tilled back in.
It looks pretty hokey, so it had better work! :o)
Now we have grass clippings on the newspapers to help cook the grass and weeds underneath and provide mulch for the garden! And it looks much better!
