I would be very interested in hearing how you garden successfully in your environment.
Larry, I'm just learning about how to deal with nematodes. This link will explain everything http://www.tomatoville.com/showthread.php?t=41682
There are lots of pictures and helpful links. This will be my first time to solarize.
We are almost positive that we will be growing tomatoes in two large raised beds only. Those raised beds don't have nematodes - while our main garden has lots of them.
