Feeding Your Plants in the Garden, the Lazy Way.

I once read about a lady who used organic material to cover the earth around her plants and flowers. Instead of putting it into a compost, she spread the material directly where it was needed. It has three benefits, it keeps the soil soft and damp as it does not dry so fast. It is a good fertilizer for the plants. It prevents the weeds from growing and saves a lot of time since you don´t need to take them away. I have tried this method and it works really good. Have you tried it?

It could be grass, leaves, straw and even hay. It will work like any materia like that in the nature, the earth bacteria will change it into soil or compost. The same process that happenes in the compost will happen directly on the earth where it will feed the plants and protect them at the same time. The earthworms also love this kind of food and will change it to an excellent soil where the plants will grow and stay healthy. Just try it, if you have a chance and you will see how it works. This all makes us feel a healthy respect for the Creator of this system, doesn´t it?
