How to prepare the bed?
I have a very large bed I'd like to use for a cutting garden (probably 30'x15'). Right now it is FULL of weeds and overgrowth. My husband said he'd mow it down tomorrrow. I remember reading something about putting some impenetrable cover down? What is this cover (and what's a cheap version of it?) How long do I leave it? Once all the weeds are dead, then do you just dig them up?
I know how to start with a fresh bed (compost the heck out of it). But what are all the steps before that?
