Gardening Adventures with Sarah

Hi!

I hope everyone is having an awesome weekend! I have been busy this weekend getting my vegetable garden ready. One day I was looking up how to prevent weeds in your garden and I came across that you can put newspaper down. It will smother the weeds. So that’s exactly what I did I put a thick layer of newspaper on the dirt after I took out most of the weeds and watered the paper to keep it in place. Then I covered all the newspaper with dirt. I really hope this method works. Time will tell. I will start planting all my plants in a couple of weeks! I can’t wait!

Let me show you what I did!

Then I covered it with a layer of dirt

It took me a long time to finish the rest of the garden. I hope that it’s worth it!

I also transplanted cherry tomatoes that I started inside from a seed into a big pot. I’m trying container gardening this year with the cherry tomatoes and keeping them on the the deck because one year a chipmunk kept running away with them!
