Turn 'em under? Tilling? Like planting them?
Have you forgotten who you are asking, G5?
Ha, yeah, what was I thinking
. I'd don't really till, like with one of those Mantis tillers, just take a narrow hoe and break up the ground. I suppose I'll make sure that the weeds stay on top.
That's my main issue with going no till.......I have to walk in my garden to weed and harvest. As you know, that creates hard paths that pool up with water when it rains. By going over them once a week and breaking them up, I'm able to keep them weeded and loose at the same time.
I'm thinking now that I should have made two long skinny gardens with a walkway in-between rather than just one wide one.
