|I did the middle section over the memorial day weekend so the goal this weekend was to finish it finally.|
I always lay out weed block fabric and tack it down with landscape staples. Make sure you overlap the edges by about 4 inches or more to help block the weeds from finding a seam to poke up though. One thing i have learned is to use A LOT of mulch.. each of these piles is one 2 cubic foot bag of mulch. I used to put it much thinner but this is the most effective way to keep the weeds out. The reason it has taken so long is that prepping the dirt to get all the weeds and rocks out and somewhat smooth takes a lot of effort. And I wait until Lowes has this mulch on sale...

|They love attention!|
|They also really like dogs... they would follow us on our walk. Flower is not one who likes them however...|
|Carrots from my yard.. i got a lot of them and this is just a small batch.|
|This is a carrot that I let go to seed. I want to see if I can actually get seeds this way and plant them.|
