Joyce's Garden Progress

Joyce and Gary have covered the garden area with the recycled heavy duty black plastic to control the weed growth. They hold it down with cinder blocks, pipes and various items to keep the wind from blowing it off. They use a drip line to water the plants. Milk cartons are used to protect the tomato plants when they are first planted. Old large pipe remnants and gallon cans are then used to protect the various plants from the wind as they grow. When they get large enough, or the wind calms down, these pipes and cans will be removed.
