Mike Brady of Derby likes to try new things in his tomato garden. This year he put down weed barrier fabric before planting. He rolled out the fabric, pinned it down, and then cut Xs in the fabric through which he planted the tomatoes.
"That has been an absolute godsend with the weeds," Mike says. "They're basically nonexistent around the tomatoes."
