    I call the method “keep it simple, less is more”. Why make something that’s so simple….. difficult? More people need to learn how to feed themselves, just in case……… Donald

  8. You and your garden are such an inspiration to all who watch your video’s. Thanks for teaching us the Cajun way.

    Hey Donnie … I do 99.9% of the work by myself. A couple of times a year I’ll get help from the family when breaking corn or digging potatoes / onions. It’s a one man operation. I do a little at a time until it’s done……… Donald
