No dig gardening fail
When you start to get serious about your quality of food and indeed your food security you will eventually want to look at growing your own garden.
No Dig gardening means not continually digging up the soil as you tend your garden. Learning how to layout and set up a section of land for use as a sustainable garden area promoting living soil growth habitats.
By digging, and similar disturbance, you can destroy soil structure and we activate untold weed seeds. Remember, their role is to cover and protect the ground and repair the soil structure. If we work with nature, we disturb the ground as little as possible and thus end up with fewer weeds. We still need to weed, but we do it faster and easier.
Soil protection is the key
Healthy living soils are key in no-dig gardening. The foundation of a healthy living soil is soil life. We need to take care of it and enhance it. We do that with nature’s way of soil protection. Otherwise, we have the bare ground which gets compacted by rain. The sun bakes the soil, the wind dries it and blows it away. Water can’t infiltrate the soil anymore, as the soil is compacted and without air. With minimal interaction and good soil protection we can avoid this — even better, we can improve the soil over time.
Like all new things, you have a trial and error process of learning and just recently I had to get out the fork and dig over a large part of the garden to help remediate a problem I had with soil health due to an incorrect balance of materials in my compost mix.
Composting while not difficult has a definite art to its successful outcome and making sure of a constant supply. The video is a bit of the story behind the setup, compost area and what I have done to remediate the garden for better growth outcomes.
