Midsummer’s garden

27 June 2013

I was worried that my garden would be overrun with weeds after spending a week at Firefly Gathering, but it’s only gotten bigger and healthier in my absence.  That’s one thing I’ve noticed about John Jeavons’s Grow Biointensive technique: the plants are so close together that weeds have a tough time competing.  There was a lot of grass trying to get established in the summer vegetable bed when I left, but I returned to quite a surprise: at least 30 volunteer amaranth plants had choked out all the weeds.  Job well done, amaranth.

The mustard and coriander are both about ready to harvest.  Expect articles on that process in the coming weeks.
