I planted yellow squash, beets, cherry tomatoes and flowers in raised garden beds to keep the weeds down.
Hubby uses straw-bales as mulch as well, to keep weeds down to a minimum.
This year he is using plastic bottles to create mini-greehouses to keep the rabbits out!
Right now green onions are on the table everyday in most every dish I cook.
Springtime is full of happy hours spent outside, even if it means repairing the outdoor spigot with plumbing thread tape and new washers.
Plants need fresh water too!
