Hello.  Have you guys ever heard of "No Till" gardening?  I am a part time farmer so very busy in the spring when I need to be planting some of my garden.  No till gardening has allowed me to cut my preparation time and garden even though I'm busy working in the spring and summer.  Check out my wife's website which has some links to learn more about no till gardening.

It's basically gardening without a rototiller, which ends up being more environmentally friendly and less expensive also.  I've been no till gardening for 2 years now and it's been great.  What are your thoughts on the subject?

Hey Matt,

One of my guys at work, bent my ear all weekend about Aquaponics. This seems to be something that works well in this group. I am going to put part of my greenhouse toward this hobby. Just google it, and you will find that, it is a cool idea

Due to recent financial limitation, i decided to spend some cash on enclosing my front porch instead of spending alot more to finish the greenhouse this spring. My thoughts when i started this project was to start my garden flats in it. Now that i have talked it over with my wife, I'm thinking much bigger. It is only framed in right now but hopefully soon it will be completely enclosed and ready to grow. It is 8x12. not real big, but my thoughts are to try and grow a whole garden in this space. I was thinking maybe some herbs after the flats went in the garden, but my wife is thinking peppers, onions, as well as the herbs. Lettuce would be nice. Hanging pots could increase the total amount of dirt to plant in. I am thinking i could built a self contained bed to grow stuff in. The containers would have to be built to fit the space and have alot of area for planting, but once it is done, ithink we could get alot out of this little space. If you have any suggestions for types of plants or types of containers. Please share your thoughts.

Hi, Tony

Sorry for the delay in rerturning your message. I am very new to farming but I'm willing to learn and build as I go.  I'm especially interested in creating a pre-form polystyrene cement form that can build a sprial mound spice garden that have an automatic watering pipe centered inside the spiral. The Wikipedia link entitled "Permaculture" has plans for such a sprial mound garden. This would be ideal for those with small years wishing to grow a lot. Strawberries instantly come to mind. If you see the Wikipedia link on Permaculture, the graphic is in there. This year was uncooperative with all the rain we had. If I wused raised beds I could have had more luck getting edible veggies. I also have a FaceBook account I check daily.

Hi Matt, Im interested in gardening outside the box. I've mostly used traditional containers and traditional row planting in the veggie garden. I picked up a copy of square foot gardening and read it from cover to cover. What types of containers have you used?
