33 years old studied art, architecture, and horticulture at St. Louis community college, meramec. Profoundly connected to the land and plants around me despite our booming populace. All my life I've been trying to learn the native plants how ever useful or harmful they may be. Learn primitive knowledge and techniques lost due our so called achievements and progress into modern world. General survival skills are important to me because ultimately want to leave this life for a sustainable one.

Hi just wanted to talk about solar gain and thermal mass. If the front window is tilted in at the top at an angle based on your latitude for efficient solar gain. It should then have an overhanging sun shade or awning to keep the sun off in the summer time. It should be insulated above the ground I dont think it would hurt to insolate a small amount into the ground but not all the way down. The berm, faundation, and even the water stored in the back will absorb the heat in the day and put it off at night. Some buried air lines could be used help move the heat around similar to goethermal.

Jipson and chickens will raise the ph and pine needles coffee grounds and compost will lower it but soil has a natural balance or buffer it will return to its natural state. Epson salt make a good fertilizer for evergreens and roses and like blueberries like a higher ph soil. ammonium sulfate or sulfur-coated urea are typicly used fertilizers to lower ph. If your blueberry bush’s leaves turn a reddish yellow color, especially near the edges of the leaves, this is most likely a magnesium deficiency. If the leaves turn yellow with green veins, it is most likely an iron deficiency.

Sometimes in the winter the sun will heat the southern side of the trunk (in the northern hemisphere) causing expanding and cracking or scars in the bark allowing rot to get in. I'm not necessarily saying that's the problem but I see trees suffer from this and survive. Is this in random directions or dose it face the sun.

Downloaded that app weeks ago. Kills your battery and it's not always helpful. You have to compare the pictures or if not found you and everyone else can speculate on it's true identification

It's not a dogwood unless it's the alternating dogwood but the leaves of the dogwood should have parallel vains.
