Garlic forest mulched with grass clippings

Garlic Forest Mulched

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?


  2. 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.
