There is a guy (Bruce Darrell) in Ireland who is growing 6 or 7 family garden patches side by side to compare different gardening schools of thought.  It is called the RED gardens (research education and development)  One is no-dig, one uses a poly tunnel, one is a poly-culture etc. They are all a little bit permie ish in the sense that none uses chemicals or machines and all explore what a family could easily do for their own vegetable needs.  But the neat thing is that they are side by side, and all done by the same guy.  After the 2017 season he has put together some analysis of the weaknesses and strengths of each approach.  I found his comments useful in adjusting my approach for the upcoming season, maybe other people will too!

Very systematic this guy! I have been following him since his first uploads. He is definitely filling a niche in youtube - garden channels. His references (such as weather - istanbul ) are very sound and useful. Thanks for sharing.
