Every year I battle grass and weeds in my main garden. Every year I lose.
This year after my spring/summer crops went by – I decided to try something different to eliminate or reduce the unwanted vegetation. I covered my entire garden with thick black plastic. The idea here is to block the sun from reaching the soil for several months – and everything underneath should die off – and not return.
My only concern is with seeds. Any seeds dropped by the weeds may still germinate next year. Regardless – the quantity and severity of the problem should be reduced substantially.
I will let everyone know.
By the way – since we are talking gardening – this is a good time to buy extra seeds and put them back. I will have a post upcoming on saving seeds. Honestly – the best method to stock up on a large variety of seeds and packaged for long term storage is with an Emergency Seed Bank. Check it out HERE.
