How’s your garden? This Summer in Connecticut has been generous with rain and heat and sunshine. Lush. I began using a method this year that relies on several factors to keep water in the soil and me (eventually) out of the garden: No tilling, a deep wood mulch in the paths, and a deep compost & hay mulch on the beds (or cover crops). I’m trying to create a garden that requires very little time input from me each year, little weeding, and zero or little watering. I won’t know how well it works until the next dry patch.
