Creating mulch will now be employed on my mulch devouring sandy soil. Why continue buying mulches of questionable quality.
Mr. Simon goes above and beyond answering "the real problems of gardening", providing techniques totally new to me.
My gardens of rare ornamental plants, in 40th year, will only need to apply some of many tactics he offers. He may have written this book for those gardeners interested in food production but any gardener can garner knowledge from his writing. I have given and recommended this book to others.
1. Permaculture is more ecologically sound, easier on the gardener once established, and better preserves the soil relative to annual cropping.
2. The available selection of perennial vegetables is limited and doesn't serve my needs or wants.
This book was written to address this conflict, and outlines an ingenious system for perennializing the garden and growing mulch and nitrogen-fixing plants in place to maintain fertility for the annual veggies. The author has clearly done his hands-on research and gives details about avoiding potential pitfalls.
Plan to read it a few times before you're sure you understand his system, because it may be contrary to your current notions of gardening and take some time to understand. Recommend it very highly.
