What I Learned - Day 8

Today I learned that if you compost thoroughly enough and add enough organic matter to the soil, you don't have to fertilize. I learned that vegetable gardening is a great hobby for someone with OCD -as our instructor labeled himself - if you have enough time to build and maintain a perfectly aligned, perfectly straight, perfectly planted gardens with seeds spaced EXACTLY the right distance from each other.

I learned that a weed is just another name for a plant whose benefit has yet to be discovered.

I learned how to identify the weeds growing in my garden - from crabgrass to cure-all.
