I have an almost-no-dig garden. Because the chook feed grows after the girls
have been on the bed, I dig it in as green manure. But that's not *digging*.

g'day chookie,

we have similar situ' when we clean out bird seed dishes or their
cages, whatever seed hasn't been eaten oftern germinates, so laong
with the no dig we pull it and tuck it under the mulch if need be,
other than that as there is never heaps of it we let it grow and then
cut off seed heads for the birds to eat, then pull the plant and tuck
it under.

Really good idea, using a mulch for the surface of beds really does keep the weeds down and ensure that you loose as little moisture as possible.

Watched a program not long back where someone was using different levels of planting to keep weeds down. Everything had a reason for being their plain trees for their leaves, bushes for their berries and vegetables planted between these.

Will try to find the link and post it up.
