My garden is a polyculture landscape—vegetables, ornamentals, edible trees and shrubs—located in Zone 5. Organic best practices are the goal, accomplished through a combination of research, preparation, implementation timetables, and monthly evaluations. The native soil is clay medium that requires constant amendment to create consistent drainage, accomplished by growing deep-rooting green manures composed of grains, grasses, and legumes planted within the rotation schema. Soils in the growing beds, varying in depth between 8-12 inches, begin life as a mix of compost and soilless media that increase in humus and soil biota each year. Much of the compost is produced on-site in a variety of composting bins. The garden requires about 7 cubic yards to be self-sustaining and currently produces about six. The largest bin processes about 3.5 cubic yards, with a worm bin processing another two.
