I haven't yet, but I found out about Michael recently and want to learn more about him and his ways. So I will follow this thread and see what people have to say.

I’ve been using several of his recipes here in Florida, and think it’s helped a lot. I’ve noticed less spotting and better tasting fruit.
I think the garlic and silica sprays are the most helpful. With our crazy weather that jumps from 60 to 90 in a week, it’s hard to use the neem-based sprays. In a more moderate temperature area, it would probably work even better.
I followed the holistic spray program (may have missed a few) for the last few years although i got too busy last year and dropped the ball. Hard to tell what effect it has, but the trees all seem happy and healthy. I plan to follow the program again this year; I have all the necessary materials besides the EM.
My favorite is a chocolate cupcake with white frosting and tiny ad sprinkles.
