The Straw Bed
This year we’re trying a different strategy for weed and moisture control; we’ve laid down a bed of wheat straw over the entire area. Now if the north wind doesn’t blow it all away, I think that we are set. I’ve watered it down and created some wind protection, so I think that it should work.
The new garden contains several varieties of peppers, cucumbers, and squash; plus a whole bunch of different kinds of tomatoes! Most of the tomatoes were started from seed in the greenhouse, and they seem fairly hardy. Here’s hoping for a bountiful crop.
