Lazy Gardening

Ruth Stout, where have you been all my life?



Money quote: "I don't do anything I don't want to do unless I have to. And I don't have to."

From the bottom of my little gardener's heart, I think you for introducing me to Ruth. XO

I wish I had known/met Ruth. She's the kind of gardener I'd like to grow up to be some day. Laura

She's rad. Thank goodness that plowman never showed. :)

Just wonderful! Is there a source for the rest of the video after the 12:01 minutes? Thanks for this.

Woops. I meant ***thank you*** Typos. The bane of my existence.

Just wanted to say Congrats on your Martha Stewart article. The photos were beautiful. So glad a great TX garden was featured. We tend to get overlooked.

I love Ruth Stout. Thank you.

She has written at least three books.

Gardening without work for the aging, the busy, the indolent

Love that title!

I've always done it my way

and

How to have a green thumb without an aching back: a new method of mulch gardening

I was fortunate enough to find these three in my local library and have actually read one.

Useful information and and most interesting. She sounds like a real character.

Oh Ruth...my muse. How precious is she?! And I love her mother's parenting philosophy as well. I aspire to the same.
