Ya got a lawn? If you do, DUMP IT FAST cuz it sez something awful about you. READ the “ IN PRAISE OF NO FRONT LAWN (*an article you can CLICK on…) Take your garden leaves now, the autumn leaves of all neighbors, and do all your curb strips with leaves melting into compost for next spring. Fill front and back yard with piles of leaves. Add manure, food scraps, no fat or meat. And if it is too cold out there, think of the great freebie GYM it is and how GARDEN SQUATS rejuvenate sleeping skeletal muscles. That'll motivate you to get a sharp spade or fork; Take out the lawn by lifting it in chips, turning OVER each square onto the leafy compost pile. Cuz, get real. YOUR GREEN LAWN tells us that you’re a bourgeois twit and you’re spending a ton of money on feeding, cutting and watering it, poisoning the environ with all the high maintenance chemicals it needs and wasting money also spending ten times what you need to spend on fruit and veggies when you could grow everything including the gas in your tank. If you had a still to distill grains. But they'd probably think you were making gin to sell to pay for gasoline.
Lawns are an abomination that we inherited from the Tudors who played a lot of croquet. Lawns are a frivolous vanity these days, now, in the time of Cholera. The Millennium. The 21stCentury of overpopulation, RECESSION, FAMINE, INFLATION, HUGELY HIGH FOOD COSTS, Global warming & Chemical Eco-dangers and governments who don’t much want us here or they wouldn’t force GM seeds on us, as it’s proven they killed animals who ate them. Govs who forbid our growing/ trading food that doesn’t enrich their chums! And already they’re ending or cutting back the entitlements that we paid for, like Social Security and Med-I-Care. Only they’re having the states do it too. Trump cut healthcare to the bone, Schwartenegga cut dental for poor adults in California. And Congress has several bills making it illegal to grow food without huge licensing fees which will double food prices. So tear out the lawn, stack it upside down in divots until it melts into compost. Then, start growing food for your family. Next danger is INFLATION, heading here after August 2012. All of which tells us, it’s time to make the VISIBLE-From-The-Street VEGETABLE GARDEN YOUR EVOLUTIONARY MOVE and your ACTIVIST FIGHT.SEE: HOW TO DO THIS NOW
Then, there is GUERILLA GARDENING, done on curb strips, in vacant lots, done by teams who move at night. Because face it, vacant lots or not ecological, Homes with big chemical hungry Lawns are NOT eco-friendly. Lawns eat up way way more water than a vegie garden and orchard and they give you nothing but sterile soil. They require you to waste vast quantities of money on the fertilizers required to keep them green. Get rid of the thing. I had 300 feet of curb space, six feet wide, had been ‘grassed’ for sixty years. I dug it up, turned it over so it would rot, added autumn leaves from my neighbor’s green barrel and within months it was fertile black humus with worms. HAVE NO idea how that happened. In back yard, I use autumn leaves on patio and MULCH leaves on all the garden paths, (I laid out a wild grid of paths when I turned a vacant lawn into a complex garden).. Replace lawn with RAISED BEDS. Found lumber edges it, or broken concrete or stones.
You Can START A GARDEN IN SPRING. See: http://www.masterjules.net/springard.htm Use your own home made COMPOST that you got lifting lawn chunks into a pile last Autumn. You threw contents of everybody's black trash bag of leaves on it, layered those two with a sprinkling of worms that you located in rich, old corners where soil is not hard, it's like compost, and now that magic combo has made compost which fills the raised beds.
ROOT EVERY PLANT or cutting pals give you from their garden. They will give you dozens of clippings. HUNDREDS MAYBE.
While you are waiting for the lawn to MELT DOWN in your compost pile, Do your CUTTINGS. Free ORCHARD OF AVOCADO TREES FROM SEED IS EASY. Do your landscaping from little pieces of plants. Even at summer’s end when tissue hardens off and twigs are tough enough to grow roots.
In my subtropical Los Angeles Autumn is when we get all those WINTER ANNUALS, BIENNIALS started. Cold hardy flowers, veggies are used in areas where there is no SNOW. IF YOU HAVE SNOW, PLANT AT LEAST HALF THE GARDEN IN EXTREMELY HARDY PLANTS and take WINTER CARE of perennials. IN CALIFORNIA we have many plants that laugh at WINTER.
It is possible to create a vegie garden in August when HEAT dies down, or wait til SEPT or OCT..if it doesn’t die down… using COLD SEASON items, (peas, salad, greens, which will live over in SO CAL until FEB. ) Only if you have no serious Winter freeze. Or start in early Spring under a tarp off eaves if you have a freeze if you are doing HEAT lovers.I had tomato plants winter over (*LIVE!) in cracks on south side of foundation!. When last frost is over,set out yourROOT STOCK for an orchard . (Fence the front yard with CYCLONE FENCING, as it’s mega cheap, throw food bearing vines on it. (and IVY to make the cyclone ELEGANT) And while you’re at it and get drip emitters.
My senior neighbor B.J. taught EMITTER TECH at Pierce Agricultural College a few miles from here. His front and back yards have this thin, black plastic conduit pipe going down every line of pots of growing things. Some in ground but mostly pots. An hour of turned on pipes a day at the right time, (being A.M. and chosen by the computer robot, he has nothing to do with it,) and he’s home free and I do mean free aswater goes right into every plant’s area or pot so it ends up being much less cost than me with my hose doing an hour in front, an hour in back, daily, and I end up paying $1.50 a day for water. . See the deal is, this method is economical, barely uses any water at all as you’re targeting the roots with the emitter tips. ISRAEL did it to a million miles of DESERT, TURNED SAND INTO a GARDEN full of PROFITABLE AGRICULTURE!GIMPY PROFIT FACTOR: Be forewarned -- Farmers earn the same amount they did thirty years ago, not related to the value of the dollar. I DO NOT mean that what was a buck then is three bucks now but that three bucks TODAY is harder to earn than a buck was THEN and has the same spending power today as one buck did then. YET Romaine was one sixth of an hour of work then and it's one sixth of an hour of work today. Farmers EARN the same or LESS for produce than back then! Go see the PEOPLE'S HISTORY WEBSITE Do a review of prices back in 1986. I did, was totally amazed. Broccoli was 39c then, 99c today. But that's the same in work terms. Eggs were 99c then, 3$ today. Okay a ratio of three ...in bucks but in terms of hours of work to pay for it? THINGS are more costly today. LAST FACTOID: houses cost 20 times more today, cars cost 20 times more and gasoline 10 times more. Salaries are less than back then. Especially farmers. Do the math and you'll see that poor farmers get no respect! Watch them go bankrupt, have to sell to AGRIBIZ. Right now AGRIBIZ has GOV cutting the water out from under farmers to ge their land. HOW could RICH CORPS influence POLS who together create inflation and the family farmer isn't part of it? Cuz BANKSTERS RUN THE ECONOMY. IN COLLUSION WITH CORPORATIONS! AND GOVERNMENT ITSELF. PEOPLE RUN NOTHING! Until they become NET ACTIVISTS.
PRACTICE FARMING BY DAY, ACTIVISM at NIGHT. SEE IF YOU LIKE IT- IF SO, you will get a vacation site farm for free, THIS WAY: HOMESTEADING by buying a lot of acres, cheap, sell 2/3rds of it to pay for your vacation home's being built. TINA DID IT, SEE HOW: ^
Now is the time to turn over the lawn, rot it down into good soil, grow & eat organically and have a good disease-free life. WHO NEEDS sprayed APPLES at 2$ a pound? Not you. You can juice your crop all autumn and never spend a time on BOTTLED stuff from concentrate. It doesn't matter what season it is when you read this! If it's winter, summer, spring or autumn. TAKE OUT THE LAWN. OR use part of it as a lawny path. Mark it with spray paint in meandering serpentines.READ GARDEN LAYOUT. You will need an oval pointed tip shovel,a flat shovel, a can of spray paint to mark the edges of paths,a hand trowel of solid steel, not tin or plastic cuz they bend as soil is damn hard when we start a new gardenbut find out about THE EASY WAYTO GARDEN and it is an easy breezy, no energy, no COST way…for newbies, oldies, lazies like me.Even for folks in rented cottages. LIKE ME!
HOW TO GROW TIGHTLY SPACED, FOOD-BEARING FRUIT TREES, VINES, VEGETABLES when you FOODSCAPE THE AVERAGE CITY LOT – ANSWER: THE GROVE EFFECT!
Walk the vacant lot planning your curving, meandering paths. Mark them or spray them. Start building your DRY STACK concrete edging or lumber and stakes. Keep the paths narrow. You aren’t going to mow them, but if you want grass on paths, measure your mower.I use plain dirt on all paths and all summer long, I life off rich soil that erodes to it, with a MULCHER VULTURE.
Create your compost pile as you will need SOIL at low cost, or free. A HUGE TRUCK FULL OF MUSHROOM SPOOR is best soil ever, and the mushroom grower nearest your home has to get rid of it every two weeks. So offer to haul it away free. Go to market, find out who's growing mushrooms in your area, phone / email them then drive there. A few truck load trips and you're ready to grow. Hey, if it’s summer when you’re at the super market, ask produce man for all the bags of CORN HUSKS that are on site. Load your trunk, take home and compost them. He usually has them stuffed into plastic bags the size of a man. They may not be perfectly ORGANIC. Lick one, see if you get HIVES!
BE A MAGPIE! To have enough compost for your garden, you need chutzpah because you are going to take others’ trash, lawn cuttings, bagged autumn leaves. AND you will need a ten by thirty piece of bare dirt. It has to be close to a gate as you are going to WHEEL in the green trash cans of your neighbors. I have often done it on the curb strip and my fave is the driveway strip.
As for your own stuff: use soil amendments, peat, gypsum, old fash cat litter urine and all, the rotted corn husks from the super market in summer, (bags high as your chest twice a day. Be prepared for astonished stares as you wheel the black bags out of market. Corn shucks are very fine and easy tho may not be strictly organic, you know! Once laid out, buried, they are ready in three months flat. Rot them down with a few trash cans full of manure, or if you have a truck …a load of cow manure from a local dairy, with enough HEAT in the rotting process that the weed seeds die. Compost your heap with a lot of green leaves and grass so that it gets heated up. Bags of already rotted down manure at 88c for a huge 2 cubic foot bag are cheap enough but they do not heat up the pile. One great thing to add to your soil is a Bale of peat. Biggest one at the store, about 14$. It must be added wet, so have a bucket handy. Add Sand so that the peat won’t retain too much liquid. BEST SAND IS COARSE, not BUILDERS’ SAND.
MAKE YOUR CAT WORK FOR YOU! Old fashioned cat litter is rich in urine, is a great addition, makes the soil very friable, even clay soil like mine. BUT remove the turds. The urine is the best part and it really fertilizes! It is pure urea, just like commercial urea costing l0$ a bag. They say pregnant women should never garden in the soil there after, if you use cat litter due to toxiplasmosis virus. Plan accordingly . I take all turds out, throw litter in big plastic tubs, wash it, splash rinse water on plants in the area of the tub (no carrying.) Rinse water doesn’t hurt anything at all. I CHECK. I research. I watch the plants Then the final rinsed sand is mixed with compost in BINS before transferring to individual pots. PLANTS LIKE IT. Cats LOVE PLANTS so maybe it's vice versa too.
Now, You will need some seeds from the store. I like the 99c store as they sell 6 packets for a dollar. Then there’s the fruit and vegetables I eat. Super Markets have tomatoes, full of seeds, fava beans, dried in bulk, easy to grow. Friends’ gardens have all kinds of seed pods maturing. Every citrus seed grows identical to parent, plant wet, don’t dry out OLIVE TREES for your new BUSINESS are not grown from seed but cuttings.
Most gardeners give away seed free. I do. See THE SEED LIST. And they will give you cuttings. Graft tips on in last week of WINTER, you can create a tree on top of your tree. But be on the look out for free cuttings and seeds in every alley. If you examine a plant, you will see where it is in its seed producing cycle. Wait til the pod forms and dries somewhat.. AND EVERY SUMMER, THE SOUTH AFRICAN CROCOSIMIA GIVEAWAY! Only time of year I can dig up the bulb! Store til cold nights come, then plant. In icy areas, store til Spring, then plant.
NURSERY CULTURE: You will need all the good potting soil you can get for your seedlings which will be placed in flats. Ground soil isn't good enough, first it’s COLD in early SPRING, second it’s not accessible. Yet. I USE GARDEN TABLES. Tear apart a pair of ping pong tables, so you get TWO out of one half and TWO out of the other. Put extra legs on, a diagonal cross bar too! Throw on South Side of the house, If you have super freezes, place near a southern window which you OPEN WHEN IT FREEZES … all night, all day if necessary. The tarp made of plastic keeps heat going out of the house there, onto the table in the winter freeze weeks. There’s your nursery. Even baby tomatoes can make it thru a California winter, this way.
POTTING SOIL is way too expensive 5$ for two cubic feet ! BAGGED GARDEN SOIL is barely fit for mulch. So find nearest MUSHROOM FARM & get FREE truckload of mushroom spoor or make your own soil in a compost pile. Flats are available at garden centers. They will give them to you if you ask. Get to know the clerks there. Or use whatever apple box is around. Line them with anything, plastic netting is fine, fabric, Burlap works, just as long as soil can not fall out of the holes though roots grow INTO the stuff when plants get bigger, so don’t let them. Move plants when a few inches high. But you want holes, little ones for extra water to drain out of the flat so plants do not rot. The irrigation must escape from some of the small holes so soil won't get sour! Sour soil rots the seeds. ALL THIS AMAZING TECHNOLOGY is COVERED IN THE BOOK THAT CATO THE ELDER LEFT THE ANCIENT ROMANS.
ANOTHER HUNDRED GENTLEMEN LEFT BOOKS: http://www.masterjules.net/aglib.htm
You will be using the extant beds outdoors, creating meandering paths, PRIMER ON LAYOUT here. You’ll be adding enrichments to the dirt in beds, not under the paths! While you can buy dirt, by the truck load, or from a MUSHROOM producer, who has to throw away a truck of spawn a week, don't buy it. Create your own. ADD stuff to the yard soil. Seek out compost, that soft, fluffy, black soil you have in little old crannies in the yard as opposed to the brown, dry, lumpy soil.. The best compost is found under pinetrees, as the needles rot into acidic humus. I don't see the sense in paying good money for dirt. You can manufacture dirt! You should really start a compost pile. Use natural compost under bushes for the time being, picking out the sow bugs as they eat seedlings but while the seedlings are growing, which takes a while, you will be making compost piles all over the garden. PILING trash, leaves, cat litter, kitchen garbage in each mountain. Plant your seeds in the available compost that's already there, probably enough for ten flats, start your compost piles LATE SPRING, TURN WITH PITCHFORK & CONTINUE TO TURN AND AMEND ALL SUMMER and wet it down, aiming for a September planting.. BUT ONLY IF you live in southern california or a semi tropical zone; then kick back and read these articles on what you need to know.

Think you can’t duke it out I the wilderness? A farmer told me: “ I own my grandfather's house which he bought (cash) with money he earned during the depression. My wife and I have already prepared the perfect recipe for these times: we have zero debt.We don't have much but what we have is ours and daily we're becoming better off relative to our mutual-funded and over-mortgaged yuppie neighbors .I'm already harvesting rhubarb, onions and asparagus here and the lettuce, peas and carrots are coming up and there's deer, rabbits and turkeys in the woods so if worse came to worse, we'd make it. The wife makes wonderful preserves and I'm a fair hand at brewing my own beer and wine. As we often tell people, the downturn means little to us since we never had bugger all to begin with. My wife does some office work and housecleaning and I am a carpenter/plumber so we always seem to be able to scratch together a few bucks. Freedom from ‘want; doesn't come from wealth....it comes from not wanting so much.”And from organizing your orchard, garden and barn.
