    It seems that once again we, meaning the collective gardening public, have disregarded the imperative known as diversity … it applies to more than the plant world too.

    Before I get into the specifics of one current problem (and there is more than one) let me reflect on our past mistakes when biodiversity has been ignored. 

    Remember the elm-lined streets of days gone by…wiped out by the epidemic of Dutch elm disease.

  • Cover crops are multi-purpose

    While I will admit that half of my vegetable garden looks dreadful, the other half is holding steady because we mulched paths with a heavy layer of wood chips, filled unplanted beds with cover crops and have weeded the rest by hand and hoe.  

    I started using cover crops about eight years ago and I am sold on the multi-purpose usefulness.  

    While many disease pathogens winter over on plant debris and an equal amount remain viable in the soil, it means we need to strategize to keep the garden relatively clean.
