TWC says we've had about 2 1/2 inches of rain this week.
On top of that I just discovered today that I hadn't turned off the outside tap, so for the past WEEK I've been leaking water from the hose which contributed to the soggy ground around my garden.
(Sigh) Trust me, I've called myself 12 different kinds of idiot today. Just wait till the water bill comes. ("IDIOT")
Since I can't dig with the ground as wet as it is, and I can't haul dirt to fill the raised bed without bogging down the truck...I've been at a bit of a loss as what I could do today.
But never fear...Besides giving all the dogs a bath...(Muddy, filthy puppies)...I managed to find some inspirition from Leigh over at 5 Acres and A Dream.
Like Leigh, I decided to attack my future weed/bermuda grass problem.
Last year I laid out landscape fabric between the beds and threw pine bark mulch on top of it in an effort to keep things looking nice.
Ha! Bermuda grass can grow through anything and everything, so before long my nice paths were again covered. You can pull and pull, it's stubborn stuff. It's also a loosing battle.
So I figured cardboard was the way to go and started snagging cardboard boxes from work. I had them in the Jeep, in the shed, in the garage. I've been collecting since the first of the year.
