The steps have been described but I have been wondering about how long does this take? What can I do to help it along, i.e., speed things up? (I want food!) How can I be sure the proper mycorrhizae are in my soil for trees? What about a neglected lot that is gone to weeds? Would the process be quicker or slower there? What trees would be appropriate first trees to introduce?
Thanks!
 
If we don't do the shopping, we won't have anything for dinner. And I've invited this tiny ad:
