thanks. I will check out Martin Crawford, thanks for pointing it out.
I have heard Sepp Holzer talk about how he goes after the pigs to just sow in the seeds easily. I guess that are the annuals he is sowing.
Does anybody have a biological explanation as to why we have to collect the seeds and start over? Why can't they just be left alone and come back?
But I haven't had any trouble with pests or diseases of tomatoes, beans, carrots, or the beet/spinach family.
I let the plants decompose where they are. So I guess a lot of those nutrients go back in the soil .

So if you want a second crop in one growing season do you seed amongst the decomposing plant matter? Or do you do just one crop per year?
