What Else You Can Do With a Rubber Sheet

Die, weed, die!

The Bishop's Weed suppression project has begun. Vince spread a large section of rubber roofing material behind the greenhouse. The idea is to deprive it of sun and water, but as a rhizome, it can probably linger underground for years and reappear when conditions favor it. My friend Lynn suggests planting something like mint to outcompete it. Mint is also aggressive and can take over your yard but at least it has commercial value.
