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!

"Plants have best friends just like people do. Marigolds help tomatoes and roses grow better. Nasturtiums keep bugs away from squash and broccoli. Petunias protect beans from beetles and oregano chases them away from cucumbers. Geraniums keep Japanese beetles away from roses and corn. Chives make carrots sweeter, and basil makes tomatoes even tastier"

I've got the old garden gate from where I grew up - this is a good idea of how to use it in the garden. Maybe with some climbing roses...

Portable solar lights for camping - also great idea if your ground is to hard to pierce OR to use on a patio! Love this idea!!
