Lots of good info....thanks!

I did a two year cover...carpet plus mulch...on bindweed and knocked it down pretty good. But it does come back...as you say. Cleaned up the new sprouting weed with vinegar and steady digging out with a shovel. Still have the final third of the garden area to purge of bindweed. Tackle a segment of ground at a time.

Didn't do a lot in the garden this summer but I did get two chokeberry bushes going. They seem to be tolerating our dry climate. I mulch them and water regularly.

Planting garlic this weekend!

Hi longhorn, Got our first light frost last night. Picked everything I could pick last night. Garlic came in this week and got garden tilled before my old Troy Horse blew the crank out. Time to repower that beast. Old Tecumseh blew up just as I pulled out onto grass. LOL

Deer hunting time again -LOVE IT!
