I have two gardens going this year. Both are decent size, but not huge. I got 4 rows of peaches and cream sweet corn, 6 rows of green beans, 24 tomato plants (12 big boy, 6 grape tomatoes, and 6 early girls), 6 hills of cucumbers, 4 hills of green peppers, 8 hills of watermelon. So should have some good produce this year.

Love watching them grow, but LOATHE weeding the garden.

A person I work with told me a good tip that I never thought of before. Instead of buying straw for your tomatos or in between your rows, rake up your dead grass from when you mowed (after it turns brown) and lay it down in your rows and around your tomato plants. She said it actually works better than straw.
