the beginnig of this year I expanded one of my garden beds and lined the borders with the large stone and planted spring crops like wild sallad peas daikon radish etc, it was a somewhat succes for a few plants.
In summer everything was going to flower and by then everything was bitter tasting,(NOTE: this is all facing the south and direcly behind our garage)by the end of summer fall moves in and things from spings planting come back like the radish.
my point im trying to make in all of this is when pulled back all the dead plants I found my beets still alive but there were small ones and a big one, since I did not irigate hardly at all I figured maybe thers still water down there.
because rocks accumulate moisture at their base i figure thats why the beet grew so big but the others did not because they were planted farther away from the stone.
Yes Jordan, like an iceburge.
I'll be taking a few of the very large stone in my yard and submerging them half way in the ground for more beet planting experiments, and other large stones for strawberry.
Also, I'll be using stones that seem to attract not just worms, bugs etc. but also Lichnes that breaks down the rock, in my mind this could possibly be like a short term-long term fertility process.
