One man’s gardening methodology

(Via a Facebook friend)

John Quesenberry moves deliberately along a straight row in his garden.

“This is my tiller,” he said as he pulls the point of a pick. His line is straight, but his only guide is experience.

Quesenberry, 81, is stocky and determined. The point of the pick leaves dark soil and gravel in its wake. He does not chip or chop. He just drags the point in a straight line.

He will cover this line with Winston-Salem city leaf compost and then plant in it. Besides the application of lime and fertilizer, there will be no other steps — and his crops look great.

Very cool. If you have enough leaves in your yard, this might be an option for you.
