The “no-till” gardening approach works great, and I practice it in my entire garden. That said, I think there are a good many people, who, in their enthusiasm, take the “no-till” idea to extremes that can result in sub-optimal yields in the first year. In this episode I give my reasons for why I think it’s ok to till or turn over your soil in the first year of a new garden. I’ll also share a new tip for weed free gardening with horse manure.
