Since we started gardening, we have done what we have always known. We have tilled the ground and worked the garden that way. It's just what we remember helping with as kids and so when it came time to begin our own gardening, that is the route we went.
Being one who loves to read and research, I have been learning about how tilling disturbs the ground, waking up dormant weeds that could be easily smothered out otherwise.
That got me thinking...
I want big beautiful gardens like the one above.
I have been reading about the no-til gardening like Sara and her family do over at Farmama.
They have some amazing gardens and gorgeous vegetables.
I also already do a little raised bed gardening.
As you know we have a few beds like that already. Some do fabulous, some not... the soil is poor in two of the concrete block beds, so we are going to have to work on that in the off season.
Aren't these raised beds amazing?
I want these beautiful results WITHOUT the use of pesticides, herbicides and gmo seeds. Is that too much to ask for?
So, do you have any tips?
What is one thing that you have learned from gardening that you would be willing to pass along?
If I get enough, I might make a whole separate post with everyones tips... wouldn't that be fun? :)
