The space selected for our greenhouse was in a no-till test zone. We harvested the tomatoes just before our last canning workshop and then the area needed to be be cleared. Most of the dead tomato plants were put in the noxious weed pile instead of our regular compost area to try and reduce the amount of “volunteer” tomato plants popping up in the spring.
