Many years ago when I was just beginning to learn about organic gardening, I read Ruth Stoutas classic No Work Garden Book in which she recommended 9-or-so inches of hay as a year-round mulch. I busted my you-know-what dragging home 80-90# bales of hay two at a time in the trunk of my car, somehow maneuvering them into my backyard and spreading the hay in my garden, only to find several months later that I had weeds in my yard that I had never seen before in my whole entire life! It took years to get rid of those weeds. In my opinion, in rural areas, hay is fantastic; itas great for the plants. I just donat want to have to deal with those field-weed-seeds again. There are other ways to get the abrownsa needed for the beds. One of our best sources for good, clean abrownsa is that mountain of junk-mail that comes to your house every day. Discard the colored and/or glossy pages (possibly toxic ink), get yourself a quality paper shredder a the smaller the pieces, the quicker they will decompose a and simply run it through the shredder every day instead of throwing it into the garbage or recycling bin. In effect, it is being recycled a into your vegetables. Same with newspapers. Youall soon have more abrownsa than youall know what to do with! Mix them with other organic matter when adding them to your bed as they tend to amata when clumped together and may form a barrier for plant root growth. Or, use them on top as a final mulch. Another is leaves. Gather them in the fall and store them in those large, black plastic bags somewhere hidden from view in the back yard until theyare needed. Neighbors may even offer to give you theirs. End of Excerptand other gardening information Joyce Zborower, M.A. ... A guide to vegetable gardening in arid lands.
