Synergistic agriculture seems to be the most natural method of growing vegetables in an organized "row" manner. Fukuoka writes about semi-wild planting of vegetables, or planting them in the orchard. I still am not convinced that I could grow a variety of vegetables by direct seeding, or using seed balls in a grassy area. I need to try it, but maybe I need to learn more also. Fukuoka has the growing of grain and fruit trees mastered.
