Do people think your crazy for telling them to multch thier garden? I have
got nothing but resistance from those who I have told to always keep the
soil covered. Everyone I know is still sending thier leaves off to the
county compost where it is likely mixed with toxic municipal sewer sludge,
composted, and re-sold. Then they pay some company to come spray a “Organic
Based” chemical fertilizer blend containing 85% urea! My landloard sprayed
my organic heirloom Brandywine Tomato! 🙁

tips….

Enjoyed your vid; however, what are EM and bocachi (sp?)? BTW how did your
garden survive your being gone last year? My husband has planned a two
month vacation this year during July and August! I’m worried about the same
things your were. Plus, I don’t know anyone in my area that will know how
to care for an organic garden. I’m trying to teach my neighbor who often
cares for others yards while they’re away, but I don’t think he’s getting
it.

@WisconsinEric I find that if I explain all the benefits of a good, organic
mulch, it’s easy to sell.

Phil Nauta says:

Improving your soil with compost and mulch will help to retain that
moisture while still allowing air down into the root zone.

Lene Ring says:

What is the best way to test your soil?

Timothy Dicks says:

Living landscapes and permaculture principles really work in a way that
makes mulching unnecessary. In my opinion, if you have enough room to
mulch, your wasting space. But yes, if you are doing typical row gardening
then mulching is vital.

Timothy Dicks says:

I spoke too hastily. I agree with you 🙂

Roberto Bahia says:

We.ve got a lot of rains in the philippines, what will happens to the
plants over watered, how will I protect my plants from over watering. I’m
nearly retiring & my scheme is to follows your kind of gardening. Thanks.

John Smith says:

I was under the impression that bark contained nutrients, whereas things
such as chipped hardwood and straw do not.

Phil Nauta says:

Depends on the size of the hardwood. Smaller twigs tend to have more
nutrients. Bark has nutrients, too, but also toxins. Straw has some
nutrients, but it’s largely carbon (which is really a nutrient, too).

Phil Nauta says:

I do use intensive permaculture methods, but that doesn’t mean you can’t
have a mulch underneath, just like in nature, whether it be forest or
prairie or anything in between. We need that organic layer for many
reasons.

S Poulin says:

keep talkin bro yoo makin sense which is good gardening Thank You !!!

Phil Nauta says:

I talk about EM (Effective Microorganisms) on my website. If you go to the
Sitemap in the footer, you can find it. Bokashi is a kind of compost made
with EM. My garden did quite well. The main reason I think is because of
the thick mulch that conserved moisture in the soil and kept weeds down.

Phil Nauta says:

Take a sample and send it to an organic lab like Crop Services
International.
