Weed barrier landscape fabric can really suppress weeds in a vegetable garden! It has tiny holes which allow water to penetrate but it blocks sunlight so no weed seeds can germinate. If you place it over the entire bed prior to planting, you can make holes or X's in the fabric to plant your veggies. Or, if you've already planted your garden you can cut pieces of the fabric to place over the bare soil between the plants. Either way, you'll reduce the number of weeds invading your vegetable garden. Hope you have a great harvest.
