The straw/newspaper combo is very successful so far. I am pleased.
Ground stays moist, and zero weeds.
I won’t even mess with landscape fabric next year.
The cucumbers are climbing and blooming.
The roma tomatoes are the only tomatoes with fruit, but all are loaded with blossoms.
Peppers are starting, my husband has thoughts of canned peppers and sausage stuffed hot peppers.
The only flop? Carrots planted by Mike. Almost none came up.
The two things I dont know when to harvest -dill and basil.
How.big are they supposed to get? I want to make pesto and freeze it.
I love this time of year!
