A mate visited me this week who spends a lot of time overseas studying organic and traditional gardens in SE Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean and Africa.
His new book -- which we launched this week -- has a picture of his son in law's family veg garden in Tanzania.
It blew me away. He says the tradition is like that in Tanzania and Kenya.
It was a jungle of different edible species rising up from the dirt. A mix that puts my efforts at poly culture in the shade.
Wall to wall of so many different plants.Close planted.
Corn,Okra, Squashes, Tomatoes, Taro, Yams, Rosella, Greens..so close that access would have been a challenge. Every bit of dirt was covered and growing stuff.
Bugs and weeds were dealt with by dint of the mix and coverage.
