Wet newspapers and put layers around the plants overlapping as you go; cover with mulch and forget about weeds. Weeds will get through some gardening plastic; they will not get through wet newspaper. Good composting!

    I've done this before --- you have to put more than just one layer of paper... you need to put the ENTIRE section down - like the A section, then overlap it with the B section, etc. Just one page of newspaper and the grass will grow through... believe me!

Clever! The next time you have green onions (scallions), don't throw away the white ends. Simply submerge them in a glass of water and place them in a sunny window. Your onions will begin to grow almost immediately and can be harvested almost indefinitely. We just use kitchen scissors to cut what we need for meals. I periodically empty out the water, rinse the roots off and give them fresh water.
