In order to help control the weeds, especially the Nut Sage, we have covered the garden for the last month with a tarp. The weeds have been out of control for the last few years and make it hard to keep the crops productive and watered. It appears that removing sunlight and water is doing the trick. There may be a small winder crop in the future for us.
I hope you enjoy learning how the garden changes throughout the school year.
