Vegetables are heavy feeders with nutrient and water
Mulch and drip irrigate
Most common vegetables need an equivalent of 25ml worth of rain per week
Purer the water source the better, rain water is perfect!
Vegetables require on average 6-10 hours of sunlight per day
If planting in rows or blocks, orientate them north south to maximize sunlight on all sides of the plant.
Sunlight is integral for ripening of fruits and leaf production.
It is beneficial to plant in a tier'd fashion, with the tallest crops furthest away from north
“Soil is the great connector of life, the source and destination of all.
It is the healer and restorer and resurrector, by which disease passes into health, age into youth, death into life. Without proper care for it we can have no community, because without proper care for it we can have no life.”
― Wendell Berry

"When a soil is very far away from offering plants an abundant and balanced supply of minerals, if key plant nutrients are nearly missing or way out of proportion then the food it produces cannot be nutrient dense. Period full stop."
