Here is my gardening tip for those who will be planting a vegetable garden. After you have planted your seedlings, use a couple of sheets of newspaper around the plants and between rows. The newspaper will keep weeds down and act as a moisture barrier to keep the plants moist longer. After arranging the newspaper, overlapping and tucking close to the plantings, water thoroughly and add a layer of compost or other mulch. The paper will degrade over time and improve the density of your soil.
