Early spring solarization

Garden solarization

Is it too early in the year to get the high temperatures necessary for solarization? Will these translucent drop cloths work as well as last year's transparent ones?

Only time will tell. But it's fun to at least imagine I'm preparing large areas of summer garden space by shaking out a sheet of plastic and weighing down the edges with rebar.

Well, if there isn't enough solarization, how about goatization? :-)
