I wanted to show you what I am doing in my garden this year to help you with this simple but efficient and eco-friendly concept.
Yesterday I took our grass clippings and put them between our raised rows. I already had Prostrate Spurge, Kochia, Horsetail and Purslane seedlings in my veggie garden. Since they are still little, I am able to just cover them with grass clippings to kill them off. I let my grass clippings dry out for a few days and then put them in. I really push them down to get a nice tight layer so they won’t blow away. I don’t have mulch in my rows yet since I still have a lot of seedlings that I want to get bigger before I put mulch around them. Once again, you don’t have to spend your time weeding if you take the time now to get a good layer of organic material down. To read my initial post on this subject click here.
