Q.

Winter cover of vegetable garden

Zone Grosse Ile, MI 48138 | PSanquist added on November 11, 2016 | Answered

We had several weeds come up between gardening fabric in my vegetable garden last summer. We will put a layer of one year old compost (black gold) down this fall (as we have for a few years). Should we cover the garden with a tarp to kill of the weeds? Will this hurt our compost?
