Two Ruth Stout Gardening Videos ...
Some of you remember the name Ruth Stout. She started the movement on no till gardening in the mid-fifties. She lived to be 96. The Grackle Blog posted video #1 on a recent blog. I enjoyed it so much I looked for video #2 on YouTube. Each video is 10 or 12 minutes long.
Aside from the many articles and books about her revolunary gardening practices she proved to be a very interesting character as well. I thought some of you might enjoy these videos where she talks about her family life and gardening as much as I did.
This is video #2:
