I apologize if this isn't the appropriate place, but how do you address weeds? Since you're pro soil microbes, I doubt you recommend raised garden beds where you toss the soil every year.

Great question, hard answer. It truly depends on the weed. Some, like chickweed and dandelion I don't mess with because I eat them. Others, like yellow dock can be pulled up like normal. Raised beds aren't terrible and once established don't need to be mixed up every year. Ideally I control weeds by planting vegetables as close as a I can and liberal mulching. The less sunlight that touches the soil, the less weeds that grow. The few I don't like, I simply pluck out.

I heard some weeds are edible and good tasting.

what I want more is for you to grow organically

Can you please define organic?

I'm this case, without pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, synthetic fertilizers or GMOs. Basically nothing man-made.
