Purpose of the Garden Experiment

Experimenting with a no toil in the soil method? #urelish @IndyCM

HEIRLOOM LANDSCAPES : THE BLOG

A 10×20 community garden plot is all the land I have, so I’m using it to answer some questions:

1. Does garden soil need to be tilled if it’s going to be productive right away?
2. Can “weeds” be spared, and if so, how many and which kinds?
3. How big of a difference does using leaf mulch and compost make in the short-term?
4. Does keeping spiders around in the overgrown margins and compost pile reduce the amount of insect destruction?

Other questions will likely arise, and I’ll be updating regularly!
