Marinated wood chips from a tree trimmer. This is my first year so I have no recommendations, but I think it may keep the 'maters off the dirt. After I plow it under I expect it to disappear.

This has been an excellent spring season in SW Arkansas. Rain about every week, sometimes more than one per week. Farmer's markets now selling new potatoes, corn, tomatoes, okra, squash, green beans. A good year for early gardens. Dan

Golly,
Your gardens in Ohio are higher than my feed corn here in Alabama!! This is the first year I can remember that the "Knee high" phrase could be used here. In fact, I got in a cultivation last Saturday (its not braggin'......just pathetic.....)

Things may be looking up though. We've had rain three days in a row. Sure hope we can save some of the stuff.....

I'm glad you're getting rain. We got .2 yesterday and it doubled our total for June. Even my zucinni stays the same size it was a week ago. I don't want to hear any viagra jokes.

George, I'll open the cover on the bed of my truck tonight, and collect some rain water and bring on Sunday. We've gotten rain every evening here since Monday, gald to finally see it. Had a bad storm come thru Tues evening, I got over an inch in 2 hrs. Bad thing is, it's so dry, comes down so hard, it never gets a chance to soak in.

It's been drier than cracker juice here in GA, but finally got 2 and 1/2" this past Sunday afternoon, thank the Lord! Corn is only about 8" tall now and will have to have the rain for sure now to do anything!
