A Weedless, No-Till Garden?
After a bit of reserach, we decided to give the no-till weedless garden a try. We've divided our 270ft x 70ft patch into four zones. Each zone has a series of beds approx. 9ft x 4ft. I spent a number of months figuring out the crop rotation for our patch by chunking the beds into groups of three. In doing so we have developed a 10 year crop rotation.
Now the weedless part- not seeing it yet! Since we tilled up a portion of our grass hay field for our garden patch we have a lot of root systems and grass seeds to contend with. We know, like anything- working the soil takes time....and patience- one weed at a time!
