I have Mollison book. I'll re-read the grains section. I assumed in my mind that that system would be for a partially developed soil. When I say sand I mean sand and gravel. I'll read and experiment though. Thanks for.the suggestion.
As far as zone Near here they say 8,9,10. Butttttt. We are in a canyon that separates us from them. I'll say this. We get lows in the winter to 10 f. Today it was 65 when the sun went down it dropped to 24 in an hour. As for summer it gets to over 100 . We have a 3 month growing season. Last June 1 it snowed. You tell me? It's a tough one to figure.
All that said I'm unsure what grain to plant. Never done them and ave read.very little.on the subject. One of lost. I think.we will be in the teens for sometime over night for some time yet. Will some grains hang out and do their thing when the time is right? Do I wait till last frost? Lost here...
