Mulching Vegetable Garden

Anonymous added on July 17, 2015 | Answered

I'm a beginner. Never thought I would get so into it. Love it. Read that I should be mulching. Are there other vegetables besides tomatoes I should be mulching? I have been growing lettuce, peas, green beans, peppers and cucumbers. I also see that I can use recycled newspaper as a mulch but what should I put on top of the newspapers? Should I buy organic compost? Lawn clippings? Finally, is it too late to mulch - I live near NY City. Thanks!!
