Growing food this way really couldn’t be easier!
Over the past two years I have been creating Potager gardens near the back of the cottage, using stone found on the land to create raised beds.
Into these beds I have packed raw wool, compost, ash, leaf mould and shredding…lots and lots, layer upon layer, of shredding.
Plants are planted into bottomless pots onto the top of all this, so their roots can spread down deep into the goodness!
The most useful tool in the permaculture gardens is the shredder!
I pile the shredding on the soil, wherever there are plants growing, spreading it around the base and everywhere in-between.
