I find it a very interesting concept

All my life I had been told to avoid wood chips in the garden due to them sucking up the nitrogen. But in this movie they talk about using wood chips as mulch and it being super beneficial.
I’ve got to leave to go pick up dh soon and will have to finish the video later, but I have some questions for you.

1. If I understand the video right you start out basically like I normally garden with some basic soil, compost etc, basically my lasagna gardening practice. Then you top dress it with wood mulch. Is that correct?
2. As time goes on you add more layers of wood mulch and maybe compost but not much else?
3. This does away with the constant need to water, is this correct?
4. Online payday loans for bad credit PBCLoans.com?
5. How long have you been doing this system?
6. Oh do the wood chips need to be from green trees? We have hundreds of dead ones we’ve got to dispose of and we have a chipper—it’s a small slow one but….
7. Because of adding the wood chips the garden won’t erode down like I am having the problem with?
8. Are there any good books you can recommend on this?

I refuse to do a cost analysis of my garden (or my laying hens)

I really don’t want to know that I’m raising the $47 tomato or the $10 egg.

I have decent luck with tomatoes, squash, and peppers. Some years my garlic does well. I seem to be an onion queen. I’m trying to develop a full asparagus bed but that means keeping the chickens out of the garden in the winter.

I’m a Colorado Master Gardener so I know enough to be dangerous. Luckily one of my volunteer activities is to man the Master Gardener booth at our local farmer’s market. I’ve decided this year I will buy my needed produce (over and above what my garden will produce) from the market. In the past, I’ve bought CSA shares but have found they are just too big for my husband and I.
