There's nothing to do here to begin gardening.... except to dream of gardening. And to me, that's a good beginning. A friend posted these lovely videos of Ruth Stout who has written some books about work-free vegetable gardening. I haven't read any yet, but I want to. The secret to Ruth's gardening technique is to much heavily with old hay and straw. I'll leave you to dream about gardening with these two videos of Ruth doing her thing and telling her story in her own words. By the way, Ruth died at the ripe old age of 96, and from what I can gather, she was gardening up to the end of her life.
The video below I found while looking further into "No Dig Potatoes." You're gonna love this idea! I'm dreaming of a no-dig potato patch! How about you?
