I love gardening, grow a lot of food herbs and fruit. I have chicken and ducks and run a small plant nursery - how blessed am I!

I actually would buy this book if it had a preview available. I looked on amazon, and I do not buy books without a preview. At least the table of contents and a bit of a read!

What we have is fill over swamp and on this did start building my soil, with tons of woodchips, compost, leftover potting soil and so on. The soil test I did two years ago came out quite reasonable but my garden could grow better. I reckon that (apart from my new compost brew machine) more minerals, in general, would help. I know that there are basalt mines which are 'paramagnetic', because boral did some research in the past on that but they dropped it (they were able to do enough business with the building boom). That particular mine is a smaller company.

Thanks for the input! I read once of an old lady and she had a no turn compost during the war which she inoculated with biodynamic mixtures, did anyone try that?

that last one is the most important thing. It is mostly lazyness to not do it but it is very effective!

With all that 5G coming up I am getting more aware of electrical pollution. I would not use an electric blanket while i am in the bed. More info at the environmental health trust. This is more about EMF's and pulsed radiation but wearing anything electrical is maybe not very good for your health.

I read about rock dust and paramagnetic rock dust. The next basalt quarry is about 80 km from here and we could either order a truckload or get a trailerload, I haven't asked the price yet. Is it worth it driving that far? I would probably have to ask about what's actually in the basalt - but do mines analyse the mineral content. On the website they say it's silica free- good or bad? And if I ask whether that basalt is paramagnetic or not they probably think I'm completely mad. Anyway I'll have to wait until the fires are over the roads are closed most of the time! Is it worth the effort and how much do you use on a bed?

We don't have access to fresh manure. And what I need to add that we are in cool temperate climate (-5C to + 35 or more).

We don't have a lot of time and turning compost takes time. And we're getting older! So which no turn compost works best and how to best inoculate? I don't want a compost tumbler, it is way too small for our garden. We have a big compost at the moment, four bays.
