doodle by andre: beaten into submission

THAT ANDRE IS TURNING INTO A KEEN GARDENER. Now he’s using newspaper to kill weeds, like we all do. His take is, um, a little “different,” though. In Andre the doodler‘s own words:
“Reading as I always do, your ‘things to do list’ – please find attached doodle about thwarting new weeds with newspaper. Though I have to say, wandering round my entire garden hitting all the weeds with a rolled up newspaper is going to take some time. Not that I am questioning your wisdom or garden knowledge. Wink.”

Andre also thinks he is a comedian, apparently. We have created a monster, a doodling monster. Dear readers, please don’t comment and encourage him any longer (KIDDING).

    I know some people who could use a good whack with a newspaper. Or, perhaps I’ll cover them with many layers of it per Margaret’s method. No, you say? Police, you say?

    Much more satisfying than the peaceful laying down process I’ve been trying. Action gardening. Could just imagine what the town would say if I ran around doing this in the front yard. Thanks Andre.

    I like andre’s method.

    Carbon-black pigment is still made by burning petroleum, and a lot of newspaper ink uses mineral oil as the carrier (with a little soy mixed in for public relations). Makes me nervous. I could whack the weeds with it, happily! But if petroleum makes my skin peel off (it does), I don’t like the idea of putting it into the soil that grows my food.

    Peas and spinach are going in this weekend, hooray!!
