Vegetable Garden – Weed Cloths

Q: I need advice about using landscape weed cloth in a vegetable garden. I’m thinking of covering it with pine straw with a soaker hose underneath.

A: It’s a great garden technique. The Plant a Row for the Hungry garden that’s overseen by Lester Bray in Fayette County recently harvested 1000 pounds of produce in one day from vegetables growing much as you describe. Try it!
