I just received a book by horticulturist and environmental scientist, Jonathan White called Food4Wealth. The book claims "absolutely everything you need to know to grow healthy, fresh organic food, without all the problems." It goes on to say:
Set up a garden that produces many times more than a traditional vegetable garden
Grow food that you can harvest every single day of the year, no matter where you live
Set up a garden that NEVER needs digging
Set up a garden that naturally REPELS PESTS
Set up a garden that has virtually NO WEEDS
Grow vegetables and fruit ORGANICALLY
Fertilize your garden for free using waste from your household
Produce food in the world's most environmentally and ecologically friendly way
Create a garden that regenerates all by itself, year after year
All of this garden magic is to take place in a raised bed with everything jumbled together, growing all over each other in a relatively small space. I'm sure this goes against some rule of nature and I'm positive that it goes against my southern up-bringing of how a garden is to be planted. I mean everyone knows that a garden is supposed to be made up of straight parallel rows with at least 3 feet of space in between each row, right?
Follow my progress as I follow the steps in Jonathan's book, it should be interesting.
