    Hopefully it will work then I can stop doling it out with tweezers. *frugal*

    That's the way we do it; raised boxes. We've had them for years, and Wife has added a couple of small ones recently. I mulched all around them over the past years, and it looks great. Plus, since I use mulched leaves I just move some of the mulch into the beds whenever needed. Than at the end of the year I give them a good covering of mulched leaves, but the beds themselves are never walked on.
    To prevent weeds I use a Mantis Tiller and till up all the mulched area around the beds. We grow tomatoes, okra, peppers, onions, squash, radish, cucumbers; and recently we added some blueberry bushes.

    they aren't very big, only about 4'x2'x4" so there isn't a lot of room to do much, I do have one of the upside down tomato things, which worked much better than my self made attempt the year before

    The fence looks nice. I put up an 8' fence so that I would not have to view the trashy looking house next door. A lawyer owns it and rents it out. He does zero maintenance on it. We have had a few run ins about the condition of his property. He came out on the losing end cause I reported him to the tax authorities cause he was claiming homestead exemption. The jackass has to pay an additional thousand bucks a year.

    Clarification here: the pic is not of my personal fence (although mine looks identical). The pic is of the type of fence we've put in. ;)
