My husband and I finally bought bags and bags of mulch to cover our perennial garden. Actually, we put down a layer of newspaper, then covered the newspaper with the mulch. We had quite a weed problem, so the mulch will make our garden look so much better.
However, my husband also surprised me by digging up our yard and expanding the garden space so I can plant more tomatoes this year. We both hate to mow the yard, so we're happy to turn our yard into a vegetable garden. Plus, it's the only sunny spot in the yard.
It's time to plant tomatoes, because our cool-season lettuces are ready to pick. The clematis vines also bloomed like crazy last week, but a strong wind has already knocked most of the blooms off. Glad I took pictures!
