I had been doing well keeping up with the weeds in the vegetable garden, at least until this week. When I finally got back there last night to check on them, it looked terrible!
This morning, I tried a trick I read about on Pinterest to control weeds. In the post, the gardener used layers of newspaper covered with mulch to control weeds. I am hoping that it will also keep the mint under control (I didn't read the back of the seed packet before planting it (without a pot) directly into the raised bed. This spring it had taken over the bed and was even "oozing" out of the seams!
Here is a picture of how I did it and how it looked afterwards. The second picture is an image of the super 100 cherry tomatoes. I am really looking forward to home-grown tomatoes
