Wow what a difference the plastic mulch makes
When I started with this I put in a box with black plastic and one box without.
My experience with this is that I have done no weeding with the black plastic, watered about 1/5 or less and the plants are doing so much better.

We harvested a head of cabbage yesterday (great coleslaw) from the box with plastic mulch.
I had problems starting seeds with the black plastic as it was not tight enough and the flapping destroyed a lot of seeds. It seemed to work best to me with I had substantial sized transplants.
Next year I am going to stretch it over top and nail wood on top of it as oppossed to trying to tuck it in the sides of the boxes.
Any one have any other experiences with plasic mulch?
