Building Soils in Your Garden
I enjoy gardening. I have treated it as a pilot project to see what might work on the ranch. I also enjoy the benefits of the home-grown produce. However, I am not a fan of weeding. Dr. Mercola recently posted an article on building your garden soils with wood chips. Wood chips can build soils and reduce water consumption and fertilizer use. It makes sense. In farming, ranching, or reclamation, bare soils are not good. In plant succession, weeds are the first thing that grow in an attempt to provide ground cover. The same is true for a garden. If that cover is provided, weeds will not (and cannot) grow. See the article for more information on Bio-dynamic Farming.
