Veggie Garden Under Construction
If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).

I was telling Chris C. a couple of weeks back that I wanted to get a veggie garden in and he suggested I should document it. So here we go.
I got an email from one of my students last week about taking out Bermudagrass from a community garden plot he just acquired. He doesn’t want to use an herbicide so I told him how I do it. I'm taking out St. Augustine turf the old fashioned way - a shovel and a spading fork. This is the way I told him to go about it.
He put down a sheet mulch of cardboard and brought in a mulch to cover the sheet mulch. Unless you’ve got an inexhaustible supply of leaf mulch like our friends in the eastern U.S. or happen to be near horse stables, this is going to be costly. And all this will do is inhibit water infiltration into the soil and bury the Bermudagrass for a short period of time. Eventually it’s going to creep out around the perimeter of the sheet mulch and he’s going to have to be dealt with. There is no easier, softer way.
