Mid summer.

The garden is well underway. This year I am trying to stay on top of the weeds, some years I do better than others. My goal is to keep the garden weed free and mulched. Usually I will rake up the grass clipping and use them as mulch. It’s amazing how even a slight layer of mulch will help the soil stay moist. As you can see from my pictures the tomatoes are weeded and lightly mulched. I also have a few carpet remnants, which I use in the pathways. They work somewhat but I actually have weeds growing on the carpet paths this year! As you can see I am still waiting for my first red tomato. One of these years I really want to try building a hoop house! What are the gardening conditions where you live?
