|These are luffa gourds.|
The garden is still in the early stages of soil fertility but the food is growing. I use an all wood chip covered garden plan and work in chicken compost, worm compost, and follow the permaculture idea of chop and drop to increase soil fertility. I'm not sure if it's the best method and I know there is debate on wood chips but we grow food, alot of food considering I started this garden just a year ago and don't water or use any synthetic fertilizer or pesticides.
