Why Gardening Sucks, And What To Do About It

Why Gardening Sucks, And What To Do About It

Garden problems got you down?

I got all excited the first time I read about intensive gardening. Growing tons of vegetables in a small space sounded good to me! But the author of that particular book didn’t emphasize the ABSOLUTE IMPORTANCE of creating healthy soil. Nor did he specifically tell me how to do successive planting.

That was the beginning of my gardening problems. I had a little bit of harvest that year, but overall it was a dismal disappointment.

My next try was the Square Foot Gardening method. Much better specific instructions, and a very organized way to plant.

Still, parts of my garden didn’t do as well as I had hoped, and I had several impossible pest problems. At one point I became so frustrated that I almost gave up on gardening altogether.

(By the way, I have to throw in that if you’re thinking, “Uh-huh, organic gardening is just too hard, if you would just be willing to spray a few chemicals you wouldn’t have any garden problems,” I have to assume that you’ve never gardened at all. Because I know for a fact that even people who spray their gardens on a regular basis still have pest problems.)

But I knew there was an answer to my problems, that I was missing something. I just couldn’t put my finger on it.

Then, I heard about permaculture. Soon after, I was introduced to a permaculture kind of gardening that typically requires no digging and little to no weeding, eliminates pest problems and needs only minimal watering.

It’s a method of gardening that is not only based on nature and scientific research, but that works and works wonderfully.

I have been using the method myself now for a while now, and am so excited about it I had to write a book. 😉  Weird Gardening is priced so that most anyone can afford it, and written so that anyone can understand it and apply the principles. If you have been hesitant to grow your own food because of all the potential problems, take a look at this book (you can download the first few pages for FREE). It teaches you how to set up a system of gardening that is low-maintenance and high-yield.

I think you will be thrilled to the gills and extremely happy with the results.
