When we first moved to the country I excitedly turned my hand to raising vegetables. We bought a rototiller with which I turned the soil in a small, neglected garden plot between our house and the shed. I had very little prior experience at growing anything but figured it couldn’t be that difficult. I didn’t know what I didn’t know.
The biggest thing I didn’t know was how much work it was to garden traditionally. Surrounded by every imaginable weed, my new plot was the perfect breeding ground for weed seeds. After I had spent every morning all summer hoeing in that little garden, my husband informed me that I was not allowed to create any more garden area until I could figure out how to garden with less work. My middle-aged back was in full support of him!
