Now, with her young garden plants coming up in what was promising to be a harvest that even her grandmother would be proud of, Sarah wished that she had someone with experience to guide her through the little details that the apps all seemed to overlook. She lifted one of the dangling parts of her tomato plant and grabbed a bit of string from the pocket of her faded jeans. She tied this fallen branch of the tomato plant up and onto the wire rack that she had bought for this purpose.
During observation, visionaries like Bill Mollison, Dan Jason and many other gardeners found that Mother Nature had a lot to teach us about feeding ourselves. One such lesson was in regard to soil nutrition. There are a number of plants that absorb nutrients from the air, process and release them into the soil for other plants to use. A few good examples are beans and lemon. Both of these plants absorb nitrogen from the air through their leaves, process it and release it into the soil through their roots. So instead of using nitrogen fertilizer, why not grow beans and lemons strategically, to fertilize the soil? For example, you could inter-crop beans and maize so that the maize benefits from the nitrogen released into the soil by the beans.
