Caitlin EthridgeNow that garden season is in full swing and we have everything planted, it’s time to kick back and relax, right?

Wrong!

Here’s where the real work begins, weeding all the rows we’ve planted! In order to stay ahead, we have to spend some time weeding every single evening.

Even though I have a great helper, pulling weeds gets old pretty quickly. So this year we decided to try some alternative methods to keep them under control. Our first project was to put cardboard down between our rows. We got it all from our local grocery store and had the help of some high-school agriculture students to break down and place the boxes.
