I just dont understand black plastic. Can someone explain?
Black plastic. I understand the concept. Put it down for warmth, reduction of weeds and so forth. Ok.
Ive do a patch of giant pumpkins for the last 2 years. By July I'm just overrun with weeds. This is the first time for me to put down plastic. I lined the bed and cut a hole for the plants to go into. But here's the thing: How are they going to get enough water? How does anything get enough water this way? Was I supposed to snake a hose under it? I only made it to 300 pounds last year and I really want to do better. I only planted yesterday so if I need to do something else I have time.
Thanks for answering my silly question.
