"How about not doing this? How about not doing that?" Masanobu Fukuoka, author of “The One Straw Revolution”, asked himself this question when developing his do-nothing method of farming. And I’ve asked myself the same question over the years as we’ve simplified our approach by gradually eliminating a number of gardening products and practices.
But what about our remaining gardening practices? Can we simplify them further and get closer to Fukuoka’s do-nothing ideal while still getting great results?
