Every garden site is different.
A flexible approach to the overall plan and its implementation, even if you intend
to do it all, is a good idea. Seek advice from someone you know who has a good grasp
of the conditions required by individual and mixed crops.
Keep in mind, there is no singular ‘right’ ways to food production. However, there
are definitively misinformed practices to which scale of food production provides
no immunity. Pesticides, herbicides, neonicotinods, and other synthetic amendments
all seek to supplant what nature does of its own accord with added costs and diminishing
returns to the producer. We can’t control something as small as a seed so why not
nurture and guide what it already wants to do.
