Darwin's not on his own this year...

My normal method of "gardening" is what I call the Darwin Garden. I take the small patch of garden area near the house and sprinkle a bunch of flower seeds and wait to see what blooms through survival of the fittest. You don't get the best results that way, but it's a heck of a lot less work than real gardening.
This is our 8th spring in this house, however, and the grass and weeds were getting pretty well established in the garden plot so I hacked and hoed and shoveled and cleared out the top layer. Then I spread 4 cubic feet of Miracle Gro enhanced black garden soil out. Of course, for the planting, I still just sprinkled a bunch of flower seeds. But I figure that without the grass, clover, violets, and other assorted riffraff the flowers will have a better fighting chance this year. If so, you'll see photos when they bloom!
