Stick with staples

Published June 23, 2005, in issue 0425 of the Hook

I was at a neighbor's over the weekend and found him busy putting in a huge garden. As lots of gardeners do, he uses a layer of newspaper after the plants, and before hay/cover. It helps keep down weeds and holds in moisture.

He had hundreds of C-villes, his paper preference. He said all his friends used them too. They just raid paper boxes. I asked why he/they didn't use the Hook. He said the staples are annoying.

I wonder if C-ville's circulation spikes during planting season? In any event, stick with staples.
