Ruth Stout the original Naked Gardener

Ruth Stout
Here's that video interview with Ruth Stout in which she admits to gardening naked because she just loved the feeling of air on her body. You'll recall that Stout invented no-dig gardening a long time ago. Her potato planting method is legendary!

Her most famous book was Gardening Without Work, "The No-Work Garden Book" in which she tells everything you need to know. Her other titles are

"How to Have a Green Thumb Without an Aching Back: A New Method of Mulch Gardening", "Company Coming: Six Decades of Hospitality", and "Gardening Without Work: For the Aging, the Busy & the Indolent".


If you haven't read Stout yet you won't know that her methods have now passed scientific tests and today are being recommended worldwide - about 100 years after she discover them.
