"Safe and blessed"
I am interested in attempting solarization for weed and pest control in the new garden plot I have aquired. I've done a good bit of research and reading on this technique and am seriously thinking of applying it to this new plot http://www.survivalistboards.com/showthread.php?p=1608882#post1608882 I figure since I must stay out of the sun as much as possible then I should at least put it to work for me when I can't be there! I found this site to be the best source of info for my area here in so cal http://www.ipm.ucdavis.edu/PMG/PESTNOTES/pn74145.html but I would be very interested in hearing from other members who have practiced this technique. Did it work well? Was it worth the time period required to wait before planting? etc. I already have produce growing in another plot so am not dependent on this for food production although I do plan to grow some edibles in this space along with culinary and medicinal herbs.
