- Jeff, thought I'd send along pictures a friend took today
of my mile-high organic garden in progress. You can post this if you think
it might inspire others to plant a garden.
- Potatoes, Blue Hopi Corn, Indian peas, beans and melons
from a mile- high plus tribe, carrots, beets, tomatoes, etc.
- I use a no-till method of gardening, in which the earthworms
do the cultivation. A 6-inch layer of straw makes for no weeding and a
steady source of food for the worms. A manifold and soaker hose system
of watering makes the garden pretty much a plant and harvest labor. I
leave the potatoes, beets and carrots in the ground after frost and shovel
off the snow and harvest from under the straw as needed all the way into
- In friendship,
