Hopefully the video embeds. But since I can't get enough of Skeeter here is Michael Pulaski discussing his backyard garden. I watched several videos featuring him. Common themes you will hear are: "closed canopy", "biological diversity", and "creating biomass.". I hope this can be an inspiration for new gardeners.
