We purchased this home in 2010 from a man who was 203 years old. The house had sat empty and uncared for for ten years, so the entire property was overgrown with brush and vines so one could not even see the house. Ten years later we are just starting to see our dream take shape.
I am so grateful to have discovered this technique of no dig gardening. I might have gone the rest of my life and not stumbled upon it. Like many other people, I used to be overwhelmed with weeds by mid-summer. Now I feel like I have found a gardening method that is physically easy enough for me to continue with as I grow older.
