We are running behind this year. With the rain, work and fixin up the ol' Allis B...........but we got more stuff planted yesterday. 5 rows of tomatoes, 22 plants per row. And a row of 32 eggplant. Trying something different this year, landscape fabric and straw. Maybe no weeds and keep em damp longer. Maybe keep the dirt from splashing up on them so much.

Last I had a garden I usedjust heavy black plastic with just a hole for plant poked through. I did place a soaker hose under the plastic incase I needed to water during growing season. The plastic is the way small time commercial farmers do it but without the soaker hose. Friend in Indiana does that and he raises what would amount to probably 4 hat wagon racks of tomatoes a year that he sells at roadside stand and at the local produce auction the he was on of the ones that got it started. one auction a week and local grocery stores go there to by produce. He raises the Candy onion same way by the truckload. The tomatoes are raised under the hoop type houses. I know nothing about eggplant, what do you use it for?

They grow a lot of strawberries on black plastic rows around here. The problem is trying to get all that plastic out of the field when the season is over.

Last I heard LSU was even working with a round hay bailer to try and get a mechanical way to pick up the plastic.

I have around 16 tomato plants out and about that many peppers. Plus a good many of the green beans are now about 6 inches tall. But a lot of the squash seeds I planted have not come up for some reason
