Ruth Stout's "No-Work Garden." Mulching year around method. Love this lady, her book is such a fun read, "The No-Work Garden Book"!
Ruth Stout's System. Mulch is the key to easier gardening. I tried lasagna gardening and square foot gardening and old-fashioned gardening, and deep mulch is my favorite by a country mile. ~WR
Ruth Stout's System My no-work gardening method is simply to keep a thick mulch (8 in.) of any vegetable matter that rots on both my vegetable and flower garden all year round. As it decays and enriches the soil, I add more. The labor-saving part of my system is that I never plow, spade, sow a cover crop, harrow, hoe, cultivate, weed, water or spray.

Keep a thick mulch (at least 8") of any vegetable matter that rots on both my vegetable and flower garden all year. As it decays and enriches the soil, so no more plowing, spading, weeding, water or spray.
Ruth Stout's System. My no-work gardening method is simply to keep a thick mulch of any vegetable matter that rots on both my vegetable and flower garden all year round. As it decays and enriches the soil, I add more. The labor-saving part of my system is that I never plow, spade, sow a cover crop, harrow, hoe, cultivate, weed, water or spray. I use just one fertilizer (cottonseed or soybean meal), and I don't go through that tortuous business of building a compost pile.

Better hose holder (1): Your hose will hold its shape better & last longer if you coil it over a large bucket for winter storage. ~ Storing hoses & cords on thin hooks or nails can cause them to crack or lose their shape. Five-gallon buckets fitted with a scrap of 3/4-in. plywood in the bottom & then screwed to the wall make great multipurpose holders. The plywood can be any shape, but to give it a more finished look, cut a circle slightly smaller than the diameter of the bucket.
