Decoy Plantings

Insect Eaten Decoy Plant

I did not plant this but this ‘weed’ but I did leave it. It serves a purpose, acting as a decoy. Insects eat it instead of my crops. The ‘weed’ also shades the ground keeping it moister. When the ‘weed’ is encroaching on my plants and they need the space I pull the ‘weed’ opening up canopy space. This is much like what we do in our forestry. Then I throw the ‘weeds’ a.k.a. pig food to the pigs and they chow down.
