Do nothing vegetable garden

In this vegetable garden there is no addition of manure, compost or other material from the outside, no weeding, no pesticides and no irrigation.

In autumn, straw, hay and some forest leaves were deposited directly on the ground. While winter vegetables were still present, seed balls prepared with barley, rye, field beans, broad beans and lupins were sown. These days seed balls prepared with vetch and mustard are sown and nature is sowing its own spring seeds.

In mid-April seed balls prepared with vegetable seeds will be sown in the same area and at the end of April barley, rye, broad beans, field beans, vetch, rye and plants of nature will be cut and left in place. After this time there is no need for any human action, just sowing and cutting the grasses at the right time.

Three-dimensional view of the vegetable garden

100 square meters of vegetable garden sown mix the seeds from the farmer in the fall, and the spring seeds sown by nature will produce 50 kg of organic material on the surface of the soil when the plants are cut towards May and nearly another 50 kg of organic material underground. Not that I am against composting, but there is no need to, she is already producing 100kg of compost on her own.

A plant growing at the foot of a vegetable may result in a lower yield because it may reduce sunlight from the garden plant. This is a human center that looks, but we achieve a different result if we see it as a natural state. When we look at it from a three-dimensional view, solar energy utilization is much higher with the presence of plants, because solar energy is also stored by them. When a plant dies, the sun’s energy that is absorbed by the plant passes on to soil microbes and microorganisms as nutrients.

Take a closer look at the energy of nature. Day after day the land becomes fertile, the crops grow well and the human being awakens. Human well-being is not just about consuming healthy food, but about the energy present. All the beings living on the farm are fine. the peasant is a brush on the hand of the master painter and the farm is the painting.
