Fresh cut grass, especially when I mowed it myself and have put the grass clippings around the plants in my garden.

Yes, I know I'm a dork.

Grasscycling! Awesome. And the smell of fresh cut grass just screams summer to me.

Dont put them right on top of your vegis but you can use the grass clippings like a mulch to help keep weeds down and it also helps to keep the moisture in the ground.

It'll also help keep your fruit from getting soft.
