I've been researching a bit about weedless gardening .. and was given a book by the same title by Lee Reich that explains how to replicate the soil environments found in nature. It's a very interesting and sound idea .. and less back breaking work than tilling in compost .. which I happened to do last spring by double digging in many cubic yards of compost (did I mention back and shoulder breaking?;). This week I'll be formulating .. in mind and on paper the garden setup for this coming season .. and using many ideas from this excellent and informative book.
For one thing .. I'll be planting less variety of veggies .. less beets .. more carrots etc. Why take up space for produce my family won't eat? And, hopefully, be using a lot less water. Are your spring gardening plans coming to life?
