Garden up date

I have been experimenting with color mulch this year. You can see more on my garden blog if you like.
My tomatoes with the cypress mulch is out growing the others with red or silver mulch. The cauliflower is growing great silver, but getting a bit larger on red.
cabbage is doing well with aluminum foil under it.
please do not mind the weeds I have not been able to work on them in a few weeks.
now look at this poor cabbage with no tin foil.
big difference
My self watering buckets are trying both colors. The silver one was just planted yesterday. And had to go through the storm we had. So It needs some catch up time.

Your tomatoes are doing much better than the ones my wife planted on our hill and then forgot about (which I am pretty sure have become gopher food)! ;-)
