Re: Gosh I miss you guys

Good idea!  Will definitely try that trick when I pull out what I want and place them in the holding beds.  Thanks.

Or, for even more non-weediness, put cardboard down with the desired
plants<br>coming through. I did this for my fall veggie garden...weed
free all<br>summer and now the cardboard is weak enough that I can just
poke a spade<br>down through it when I want to put in a
seedling.<br><br><br>> [Original Message]<br>> From: Judy Browning

guys<br>><br>> I agree with Bonnie. Don't try to do it all, though.
Concentrate on a<br>area <br>> you see every day, clean it up & mulch
it. then, move on to another. If<br>you <br>> don't get it all done, you
will at least have one area that gives you<br>some <br>> pleasure. I
have been in a mess most of the past 3 years here, and this<br>has <br>>
worked well for me. I just kept up with the areas by entry ways, and a
<br>> little here & there in the others. This year, Ed spent most of the
spring<br>& <br>> summer doing

deep cleaning on the other beds and it finally all looks<br>good. <br>>
( Except the one I didn't get mulched!)<br>> Congratulations on your
graduation. A wonderful accomplishment.<br>> It's nice to have some time
with the kids. I drove my son to school his <br>> freshman year. Found
out a lot about his thinking and his dreams.<br>> Judy B<br>> -----
