This is what a bit of tweaked nature looks like.
I do nothing but pull the occasional interloper out of here… and sometimes hack back the plants so the sun gets through a bit.. and sometimes throw down a little extra mulch.
Half of these are edible or useful in some way, and the others are edible.
Got a space sitting unused?
Start packing cuttings, seeds and starts into it and let ’em run wild. Anything is better than empty grass… and a mini food forest beats all.
