This ones for my fellow #notill #marketgardeners out there. We have had success with black plastic and occultating the soil for alleviating some weed pressure and preparing beds. BUT but but! So many of our worst weeds do not germinate under black silage tarps, like crab grass and purslane. So I’m finally going to try transparent greenhouse plastic and #solarizing over the winter in our flower garden to compare the results. Never really done this before, but seems like it may help us get stale seed beds@in the spring. If you have any thoughts on the two methods and how they compare let me know!
We had quite a long conversation in this position. Adam just won’t come outside!
Birds in the tunnel and Adam raking some tulip compost.
It’s exciting to imagine that in a couple months this tunnel will be full of herbs, salad and cooking greens. For now we have to settle with the joy of watching weeds germinate in the hot tunnel and then flaming them with the goal of creating stale seed beds.
