“Malo periculosam, libertatem quam quietam servitutem.”
Does this method work with "weed" as well?
Used to watch Mel a long time ago. Used "Square Foot Gardening" for many years.
I've been following his methods since my shoulder injury 19 years ago. It works well with minimal hoeing. Now if I could keep those damned deer out of my yard...Al_in_Ottawa
I'll go with the tried and true Euell Gibbons book: "Stalking the Wild Asparagus".
Thanx for that-just ordered it-my gal & I are going to try raised beds this season and this looked like just the ticket
I live in Texas and own this book, have implemented the ideas, but had limited success with some plantings. Spoke to the local gardening guru, he said Mel is/was a brilliant guy but be careful with this method in the warmer southern climes - it does not give enough depth to the soil to keep from searing the root systems. So I dug it up, removed the weed barrier at the bottom, dug another 6 inches down from the ground level, mixed some amendments with it, and reseated the box and all is better.
