Natural Agriculture and Me

Ever since I heard about natural agriculture and read Masanobu Fukuoka's book "One Straw Revolution" I have been interested in the theory. Stop tilling the fields, work with nature, not against it, use less time and labor, and so on.

There is only one problem....

I like digging! I love the way a freshly double dug bio-intensive bed looks! The smell of the freshly tilled ground, counting the earthworms, the neat and tidy look of it... I just love it! I even love to weed the garden- I just don't have time to do it!

So I think I will continue to double dig for now at least, and just admire my Natural Agriculture practicing friends.
