Here we go again. It will be year #2 with a sawdust garden. I can only tell you what I did.

Last year it was ash sawdust and this year it is cherry. I have done the same thing as I stated above (last year) I had no problems and basically no weeds. I had a sea of red and was only seeing red. I was loaded with tomato's.

The sawdust for the most part started to decay by late August. Come the end of the season, the garden was rototilled in October & again in early November. Then again in May. The dirt is very rich & black.

If the sawdust depleted the soil of Nitrogen, I surely would not do it again. 2 different angle shots. Sherrie
