John from http://www.growingyourgreens.com/ shares with you why he purposely grows edible weeds next to his vegetables and the 10 benefits his garden gets because of this.
In this episode, you will learn how growing more plants in your garden can help to improve soil health, and benefit you. It is commonly thought that weeds are BAD and should be all pulled as they “rob nutrients” from the soil. While that is a simplistic approach to weeds, after years, John has other thoughts, on how to create a community of plants and roots growing in his garden that can benefit him.
You will discover the 10 ways that growing edible weeds alongside your vegetables will benefit you, your vegetables, the soil, and even beneficial insects and more!
After watching this episode, you may think differently of weeds, and allow some edible ones to grow alongside your vegetables, or even intentionally plant them.
