Solarize soil to burn out weeds and diseases
publication date: Jun 1, 2001
A friend of Frank’s used to say, “This would be a great business if it weren’t for the customers.” We thought about him the other day while running the farm stand. “Do y’all have any vegetables?” a woman asked us. She was standing right in front of a wonderful spring display of spinach, onions, herbs, snow peas, swiss chard, lettuce and radishes. We weren’t sure what she meant, exactly. “I mean tomatoes and peppers,” she said, a bit exasperated, “ things like that.” It was early April - even here in Texas, tomatoes were still a long way off. She left without buying a thing. Not even a radish.
