Plastic & Drip Irrigation = Few Weeds & Productive Plants

Most people lay this plastic down with a tractor, but the old fashion way works just fine too.  First, put down compost, fertilizer, and/or lime...till that in.  Then, run your drip irrigation, cut it & hook it in.  Then, roll out the plastic.  Dig a trench, bury the edges of the plastic...and repeat for 9 rows of 150 feet.  Each row takes a minimum of 2 hours, 2 people...good times ;)

Recognize that flower??  It's a carnation, getting ready to burst into bloom :)
