I "lay it by" and leave it alone. Potato plants are dying about the time the corn is too tall to cultivate. Tomatoes can be cultivated weeks after the corn is to tall. You can use straw to mulch tomato's if the weeds take over after you'd staked and tied them up. I have 50 foot rows. Generally raise 4 rows of potatoes, one row of tomatoes, 1 row of okra and cucumbers and 10 rows of corn. If you stay on top of your cultivating all year you won't have a weed problem while everything is ripening.
