Your garden is so good, you can even grow small children in it :P

+1 on mulching with grass.

It's beautiful, and very impressive. I'm really surprised that you can grow all that with no fence around it! Do you not have deer or other critters that raid the garden?

Its funny I have all kinds of critters running around here, but the only one that has been a problem is our new puppy... I had to replant my green beans because she was nice enough to pull each and everyone out and relocate them..(I'm still looking :D )otherwise I've been really lucky!!

Dogs are the worse, my dog would destroy my garden without a fence, even a little cheap 'ol foot high landscaping fence keeps her out. She WILL step on every plant like stepping stones, given the chance. She also likes to rub up against everything. I was planting today when I here "Snap" she walked by a plant I had just outside the fence and broke a stem on it. :evil: :lol:

And a little tip to find your beans look around for some black lumps that resemble sausage you might find them there! :lol:

Using hay

I have used hay for over 20 years. I put it on very thick. I have no unusual problem with weeds, because I keep on mulching . My tomatoes are taller than me(5'10) and I can not even tell where one plant starts and the other ends. They are all caged and spaced 3-4ft apart. I think the hay adds the extra boost. Before I started using hay as mulch they were nice but not this nice. The rest of the garden is great too. I use to use straw.

You're garden does look nice.
