I can't imagine all the rain some of you are getting. Here in NM we are lucky if we get 8 to 10 inches a year. Therefor we have to concerve our precious commodity. They (NM State U. in co-operation with the farmers) have been trying all sorts of ways to save water. What with Ma nature being stingy here with water, the inviro wackos think that some little fish or snail or frog is worth more than growing crops for people. (any one interested in further info on this let me know) The farmers are putting down a fibres plastic mulch to slow the evaporation. In doing this they claim possitive side effects.`And because of it's black color, the mulch kills weeds naturally. Now listen to this. According to the artical, "Bindweed is perennial and it comes up every year and just stangles your garden." It continues, "We've done some studies and eventually you kill out the bindweed. No chemicals. The plants just shade the binweed out. It (the bindweed) eventyally just starves itself because it's not getting any light."

My first reaction to this is, seing is beliveing.

Maybe Si, Maybe No
