I guess my questions are:
1. How would you guys deal with the current level of brush in order to prep this thing for use, while preserving soil ecology and making the best use of the organic matter?
2. Do you have any 'permaculture' based recommendations for making the goals of a 'monoculture' type endeavor mesh with the fine threads of sustainable farming? Perhaps plant combinations?
3. Is there any downfall to chopping this brush down, so that the field is easier to work with in the mean time? It would be nice to be able to get around on the field. I could actually pile up all of the brush and compost it.
4. I have japanese beetles... anyone successfully deal with these organically?
