My 4×8 bed of garlic was weeded again and mulched with the grass clippings as I collected them with my mower. Ideally I would have allowed them to brown in the sun first, but it’s a thin enough layer that they should brown in place soon.

My husband will be happy to see this! Do you cover your whole garden in clippings or just the garlic?

I would mulch more, but so far this year it has been so dry that I haven’t had to mow very much. In addition to the garlic I also covered the ground around the sweet potatoes and okra. The four tomato plants get the clippings from the next cutting.
