Where to start?
This is a picture of my garden plot today.
This will be my fourth year to have a garden, but I have not been as successful as I would like to be at it. My biggest problem is the weeds. I want to be as organic as possible so I don't use weedkillers.
What I normally do is till the garden when it gets warm and dry enough. Plant seeds and some transplants that I buy at the store and I get some vegetables.
I also want to improve the soil. I know that I have heavy clay soil which I have been amending every year with composted chicken shavings and manure from my own chickens. I thought it might be a good idea to plant a cover crop of mustard this year but I am not sure if I have time. My last frost date is around April 20.
Right now my garden plot is wet, muddy, and has remnants of the old weeds in it.
What would I need to do if I wanted to try to put some mustard seed out now, since the soil really can't be worked?
Or should I just be focused on some kind of weed killing method?
Any advice is appreciated!
