So this it....my first question for all of you.

If I have a (almost) 2 hectars of land that hasn't been cultivated for the last 15 years....so no pesticides or anything. But always have been mold??? (they were cutting the weeds and flowers and everything that was growing there in fall)......do you thing that if I sow mixt grains that I could start with something? Or will it be easier to plow...plant fruits trees and sow around?

Also...don't know if I can ask this here....but in Holzer's book, he is saying that he is cultivating grains....he cut it in fall, but after that??? The year after does he sow grains at the same place? Does he put the pigs in? does he plant trees? Does he try to take of the materiel that stay there after the cut to bring back nude soil and sow again?

So couples of questions....I'm trying to find a strat to my biiiiig land.......other than my veggies garden.

Thank you.
