After 4" of rain two nights ago, there wasn't much choice but to go play in the mud. I had to peel my shoes off a week ago because I was sinking a lot deeper than I was today.

My beans are still several days away. I lay newspaper down between the rows and cover the newspapers with grass clippings, helps keep the weeds down and makes it easier to walk between the rows. Just like walking on carpet instead of dirt or mud.

I use aged sawdust.  Picked our first beans a couple days ago.

This year is my first for using the newspaper mulch and I'm completely sold on it. Clean strawberries for a change!!!
