Easy Peasy Vegetable Gardening

I only have a small yard. I’m older, and can’t do all that I used to do, but I sure do love homegrown, totally organic vegetables. Thought I’d share this because it works extremely well for me, and so many folks just don’t have time for a garden anymore.

Great plan, Donna. The square cages do sound like the best. And yes, once the leaves are good and moist, covering them over really helps things here. Worms and fungus can work on them and they go better thru winter than upright leaf piles that get dry around the sides, and cold due to lack of nitrogen.

If you can't turn the soil in the rows, I think you could still just dig for each plant.
