RE: [fukuoka_farming] Started reading Natural Farming BOOK
- Ingrid Bauer / Jean-Claude, my father taught me a long time ago to put any
organic matter from the house directly into the soil. At times this was a
challenge, especially if it was hot or the ground was frozen, but the
results were always fantastic.
We always seemed to have the happiest garden in the area. Whether it was
from the direct addition of organics to it or the fact that dad made wine
and apple jack, putting all of the material into the garden (he did till the
garden that time of year).
He also went so far as to aerate the lawn, the plugs went into the mulch
pile that was from the leaves and manure he would have delivered, always in
the summer and always at the bottom of the driveway so I would have
something to do. And the mature mulch would be racked over the lawn, filling
the plug wholes.
