Weed Control for Garden

After I plant the seeds in my vegetable garden, I lay down 2 layers of newspaper (not the colored pages) then cover with old hay/straw or free mulch that I get from limbs/trees that have been shredded. I leave space for the seeds to sprout. This really helps control the weeds. At the end of the season, I can plow the garden and the newspaper/hay makes my soil better for next year.
