Hydrangea paniculata Limelight baby to get this lazy looking beasty kid. Why to want it so much? Utopia, darling, idea fix – however you call it.
Comfrey finds his home in my garden because of its great natural fertilizing values. First it is free fertiliser, second it will make my garden more self-sufficient. With the time I am more and more bored with going shopping, so more and more often I do things to follow my utopia idea of being self-sufficient. Let’s say that on a better days, I believe it's possible to certain extend.
While gardening in real organic way, not industry promoted way, I am on my quest to improve soil quality without tiling. Why? Because lazy gardening is better – don’t you think? I prefer to spend more time to read in my garden, than only work, work, work... Don't get me wrong. I do like to work in the garden and it will never be possible to do nothing, but I want to reach balance with the help of Nature and make my garden self-sufficient in nutrients, that are removed while harvesting.
There are scientific proofs, that without tiling and weeding it is possible to get even better crops than while tiling and weeding. Sounds revolutionary? I know.
Lazy gardening doesn’t mean doing completely nothing – it means changing way of thinking, changing way of gardening and focusing on doing only necessary things.
Comfrey is one of my steps to ‘lazy gardening’ – what are yours? Or maybe you fully reject this idea and prefer too much work in the garden? How is it with you?
