I will not be posting pictures of my other two patches for a while.
One of my better ideas, has not worked out well at all.
I got the idea that it was a waste of time to till areas not growing produce.
So I was going to plant grass and only till the strips I was planting.
That would give nice grassy walkways between the rows and I would not be tracking the soil into the house.
SO last fall I planted grass in the garden as a fall over crop and intended to strip till this spring.
The fall planting did not come up? The grass was not growing when I planted this spring..
But it sure has gotten away from me now that I do not want it in my garden!
If I ever get it cleaned up I will post some pictures.

I still think it is a good idea, and will try again next spring.

Did you have a lot rain in your area/ flooding? If so the grass seed would have rotted or been washed away.

No for some reason it just never came up.
5 yrs ago after losing a home to flood, I moved from the lowest point in the county a mile from the river.
To the highest point in the county 8 miles from the river.
My 9 acres is one big hill, my garden is on top of the hill.
From the lowest point on my property to the highest is about 60 ft in elevation change.
