My post was also deleted. Thank you Roger. :)


Some times it is not what you say but how you say it.
I agree 100%
The keyboard you are responding to or deleting posts comes from a pc full of chemicals (many toxic metals), the log train to get it to you is full of petro products and smog producing emissions, the electricity from coal, and most of the plastics will NOT be recycled.
I also agree 100%


On the carpet weed barrier, if it is synthetic it may never break down. Natural fiber and jute backing would be fine.

Less and less tilling here. If at all, the paths between the raised beds. Lowering the paths and raising the beds. Heavily mulching the beds also. I should have less and less weeds over time. :D

Boom you got it, I would much rather till now than use roundup. Than begin the heavy mulch treatment than over time as DDF said tilling may not be needed and the lack of weeds will amaze you.


Again Mulch, Mulch, Mulch

I love mulch, I hate weeds.

P.S. unless those weeds can used as mulch. :lol:
