garden no-no’s (part 2)
I CAN SEE this blog is indeed becoming a list of rules and to-do’s (or not to-do’s), as predicted, so let’s continue the thread we started last week together. “You and your garden rules,” one of you chided in response…but then chimed in with some of his own, pot calling kettle black. Let’s continue now: What are your garden no-no’s? I’ve added these to my list since we last spoke: Synthetic weed-block fabric: Use recycled cardboard or thick layers of newspaper under mulch to slow the weeds. That nasty stuff is made of nasty stuff, and you’ll never get it out of the ground again; don’t incorporate it into your garden. Automatic sprinkler systems that nobody adjusts when sprinkling isn’t needed. They are not artificial intelligence; human judgment still required. I think I agree with all the ones on the previous string of comments (especially my ideas, of course).
