I am not proud of this, but this is what happens when you use straw mulch that hasn’t aged for a year:
All the straw had sprouted and was starting to choke out my new plants.
This is what it looks like after nearly three weekends of weeding and tending to everything.
There are gallon cans around nearly every small plant on our property. The chickens get to roam and do as they please so we have to protect small plants from their rooting around.

I am a wife to my wonderful husband and the mama to two beautiful girls adopted from China. We are striving for a simple life. We want to be able to provide ourselves with most of the items we need to survive; only buying things when absolutely necessary. We now strive to provide a portion of our family's food through organic gardening. I cook from scratch, live a fairly frugal lifestyle, and make my own non-toxic cleaning products. Please join us as we stumble toward a more self-sufficient and frugal life together.

Good Job. Looks like everything came back that we planted last year.
