We started our project on a warm, overcast day.
The tarp goes down on top of compost from our own composter. Plants will be planted in holes cut into the tarp. Hopefully this will cut down on having to weed this large area as well as retain moisture in the soil. The area is approximately 12X20 feet large.

We have planted: herbs (dill, cilantro, lemonbalm, oregano, chives, parsley), tomatoes (cherry and roma), peppers (green, jalapeno, pimiento, cayenne), eggplant, squash, zucchini, corn, cucumber and beans.
Additionally we have in our yard: a peach tree, a fig tree and blueberry bushes.
