I know that we have at least several serious gardeners on this board, so I thought I would ask you all what you do. What do you do for weeds in a veggy garden? I do all organic gardening, so my FILs suggestions of chemicals is a no-go. I try to keep up on weeding and pulling them out, but when I go more then two days they are OUT OF CONTROL! I have landscape fabric between the rows right now, and I am trying the whole newpaper between plants, but every time it rains the paper is almost gone, and it's raining almost every day here (which is nice because the plants are HUGE!)
What about bugs? Both annoying ones to me (misquotes) and ones that eat the plants, like beetles? I am having a hard time finding organic solutions to getting rid of bugs. My one sister used to pick potato bugs off of plants every morning. But she's a PT at a school district, so she's off work all summer. I don't have time for that.
Any other tips you want to share would be great too!
