I sure would not be planting any grass seed in a garden. Grass is a weed in a garden. It was so wet all this year that the Preen did not work well either.
By conventional thinking I would agree. In fact I am just beginning to think of trying something else. 28 yrs in the business world has proven to me that the biggest prevention to growth is the expression "we have always done it that way".
Is it a good idea to till the whole garden, leaving the areas between the. Crops open and exposed to erosion?
Would grass strips between the rows slow water and washing out? My property is 9 acres of one big hill.
Would grass strips hold more water in the garden instead of running off?
Why haul mulch, when you can grow living mulch between the rows?
Is it a waste of fuel and energy to till areas not in production?
Alright may burn just as much fuel, mowing, but I can even mow wet grass while I am waiting for it to dry enough to run a tiller.
Is it popular to track dirt and mud into your wife's house,when you could tend the crops standing on nicely mowed strips?
The list could go on and on, I have the land, time and very little money.
So why not try it? The worst that could happen is I am altogether wrong, and have to go back to the conventional way I always have.
