This is my very first post. We are really working on the gardens this year! Here is a sneak peak at a passive weeding technique. Tarping! I just put these down after we prepared some beds and before the rain on Tuesday. This helps us keep our planting schedule, germinates and smothers weeds, and warms up the soil. And did I mention we don’t have to use herbicides? We used this technique last year, and after all those rainy spring days we lifted up the tarps to find dry soil to plant into.
