Mulch Ado About Planting


Angi grew up in southern Arizona but now lives in central New Mexico with her husband, two sons and four dogs. She creates, she responds to Yoast support requests, and she loves to ramble on about anything. When not doing those, she can be found slaving over the kitchen stove cooking for her family, curled up with a good book or watching any one of her favorite TV shows.

    I was all excited earlier this year about gardening using the ‘Back to Eden’ gardening method. You can read about it here. however shortly after planting it rained alot and now its so wet we are not having alot of luck with it, but your pictures above look like a dream to me 😉

  2. I’m attempting to have a green thumb 🙂 So far, carrots and lettuce aren’t working out…and please don’t look at my skewampus rows…digging rows by hand will not come out straight, lol. I’ve never mulched, so I’ll have to look into that. We have horrible clay like soil here.

      Tim did a whole battery of tests on the soil and spent multiple years with cover crops to nourish the soil with failed vegetables each year. This year we actually have some fantastic potatoes, shallots, onion and garlic that are doing pretty darn good. Tim grew up in an agricultural family and his grandfather had fields filled with asparagus, tomatoes, grapes, plums and more.

      And Tim said don’t worry about straight rows. The acre fields around us are never straight and they use tractors to make their rows.

  3. I wish I had a green thumb I have more of a black thumb that spreads nothing but death lol!! I even killed a spider plant!!
