Little Mikko and Amaia come for a visit and help me pick the diakons from my boulevard garden. According to Masanobu Fukuoka who wrote One Straw Revolution, diakons are a good plant to help you dig up hard, stony soil.

My middle plot is full of crimson clover and diakons. I also planted diakons in my other flower-beds to help loosed up the hard-packed ground a little. It seems to have really helped!
Diakon leaves have little prickly hairs on the edges of them, so be aware of this if you try it at home 🙂
