There are more gardening ‘methods’ out there than you can shake a stick at. This guy does use/water his plants – just not all of them or as much as some people might. Also doesn’t plant ‘intensively’. But he is also always hoeing making his dust mulch. Ugh. To me that is just lots more darn work – gradening is work enough without hoeing all the darn time. I don’t do that. I mulch everything.
For me, I use different methods for growing different things. The crops I depend on to feed myself I will water if needed because I depend on them to live. Crops I don’t depend on or am experimenting with I may or may not water much – depends on weather, my available time, if I remember etc.
Thanks for the free read.
