Plastic Mulch for the Vegetable Garden

We rented a plastic mulch layer attachment this morning and bought a roll of plastic mulch.  In less than 2 hours, Jeff had 10 rows made…and this was the first time we ever used an attachment like this.  We still had drip irrigation line left from last year and this attachment made raised bed, laid down the irrigation line, covered everything with plastic mulch and scooped up some dirt around the edges to make sure the plastic cover is secure.  We also bought a tool to make holes in the plastic to drop seeds –  thinking of squash, pumpkins and cucumbers.  Mostly though we are planning to use these mulched beds for plants:  tomatoes, peppers, sweet potatoes, onions and melons.  It should hold back a lot of weeds and reduce water usage from the irrigation.
