Strange Food Garden practices

Oh about 20 years ago A guy I worked with did this as a food garden.
First ran a disc about. Then mixed every thing he wanted to plant with annual Rye. Then ran a disc again to mix it up. Quite a mix No?
Two months later he would look about an pick what was there and every 2 weeks or when he needed it or when he felt like it would check again.
I Kid you Not!
Bill who says his yields were low per acre but high per effort.
