First, the garden related photos, since that's the primary purpose of this rambling blog.
I've heard that using newspaper as weed-control mat works and is hippie-friendly. I've not had good luck with it in the past, but I'm trying it again, this time before the weeds (read: grass) have a chance to grow. Here's also a picture of a crocus budding in the front yard and the garlic that's sprouting in the garden.
Unrelated to gardening, here's a picture of me working on my afghan. I've been crocheting it for two winters. If I pushed, I could probably get it done this year, but why bother? I've got lots of garden stuff to do now and it will wait.
