Assorted squashes at Rosemoor RHS Gardens in Devon showcases the art of edible landscaping.
Awhile back I wrote about the two four foot SFG boxes we built for our back yard. Well, it looks like Spring has finally sprung for real now and I thought I would give you an update on how that project is going.
Seriously? Does anyone really think the executives running Monsanto actually eat this stuff they are shoveling out there for the unwashed masses, a.k.a. US, to eat? Hey, my brother-in-law’s family doctor knows enough about this stuff to have his own hoop houses with his own organic food growing.
Once upon a time, several generations ago, this land was populated by the native tribes of North America and many of them planted a garden that came to be known as the “Three Sisters Garden” which provided the majority of the necessary nutrients to survive.
