This worms is really loves fennel, Me too. If I do not weeding this farm, it's might this worms will become a huge outbreak. Because, all of the elderly farmers in the neighbor are perfect weeding. All the surrounding insects will be come to my farm.
What is the natural farming? This is a difficult problem about weeding or not weeding. For now, We do weeding on this farm. But I don't want to do not weeding, it's too very hard work for the man by that way of farming. Contrary, farm working is easier if do weeding. I wish to do not weeding of my farm some day.
Time for a little experimenting. This photo is of 9 beds of echinacea. 4 got mulched with straw donated from the garlic beds, 4 are getting wood chips from two big pines we had taken down next to the house (and got to keep the ~25 yards of chips!) and 1 will get no mulch. #mulch#springtime#weeding#notweeding#perennialcrops
