Ruth, You have inspired me.... I WILL try some of your methods because, like you, I feel that if unwanted plants come up on their own, why shouldn't all the wanted items.  Already have a lot of faith and respect for the power of straw in the garden.  I usually lay a few layers of newspaper before I sprinkle straw, but will try it without the paper in a couple areas this year.  Love your attitude, spunk and getting it all done before 11:00 a.m.  You inspire me to take it easy and not so serious in the garden, looks like all it takes is faith, trust and a little pixie dust (cottonseed meal).  Don't know where to get that but will look around and find it.  Thanks, enjoyed this immensely

I loved listening to my grandfather telling me about the great depression, and what they had to do to feed their family. I could sit for hours listening to older people talking about the good old days. Everyone says I'm crazy, but I think everyone should have to live like our ancestors for about two weeks, that would be just long enough to let them know just how good they have it today!!!
