Weeds

The bane of any organic gardener’s existence are weeds. We have been keeping up with the weeding as much as possible, but we’ve learned the hard way that there are just too many. So we’ve been exploring different methods of mulching. We currently have organic grass clippings on a row of onions and a row of peppers and it seems to be working pretty well. The mulch is about 2 inches thick and it has kept the weeds down pretty well. Between a couple of the other rows we laid down cardboard.

This is a row of peppers that has been mulched with grass as well as the cardboard. It has been working decently so far, though there are still some weeds poking out.
