The optimistic gardener

Made a new veggie patch today. Will my toil bear fruit? 

Yesterday's news: Newspapers make a weed barrier. 

Full of shit: Compost, home made in every sense of the word.

Soiled: Added some soil. Not wonderful stuff, really. Pretty nutrient-free and acidic. 

Wrapped up: I'm not one for plastic mulches, but I need something to protect the soil before planting and while I forage for "normal" mulch, before the forest gnomes start planting stuff on their own.
