I came from a Google search, researching an issue I'm having with Black Medic invading my front lawn. I eventually landed on richsoil.com. I wish I had challenged that link FIRST, as it would have saved me about 2 hours and a migraine. 

Paul, your website is just an absolute gem. I love the fact you didn't go cookie-cutter with it. It's unique, quirky, and your articles cut straight to the chase without a ton of superfluous side tracks. I trudged through about 8 different websites with Black Medic content and walked away from all of them feeling no more educated about the subject than before I got there.

I don't think your site had much more info on Black Medic, because frankly, how much info can there be on a legume? What I did find was that, on your site, the info I sought after was embedded into a page dedicated to overall lawn care. I came away with so much more information than I bargained for...

There is something to be said to gaining information from a person's lifetime of experiences, versus say, getting the same information from a  textbook (which is how all those other sites approached their content). I have spent several hours looking around the site at other articles you have put together, and am simply amazed at the attention to details for whatever subject you are covering. I can very much appreciate the 1000's of hours you have put into all of your content. On behalf of anyone with a brain and gratitude, I salute you, good sir! Thank you for sharing your knowledge with the world!

- Keith

Thanks for the kind words Keith.

If you can add a link or two, or put something on your facebook page, every little bit of that sort of thing helps!

Paul,

I would like to thank you also.  I discovered you through the Survival Podcast.  AND I discovered THE Sepp Holzer through you.  I am a relative newbie, with high aspirations.  I have been sidelining your forum religiously for 2 weeks and finally registered today.  Thanks again.

Thanks Fritz.  Since you like this, I hope you will help with spreading the word about my stuff.
