    As I write more threads on the subjects of soil, compost, and other related materials I will be adding the link to this page so it is up to date.

    I thank Nicole Alderman for coming up with this idea and implementing it.

    I finally completed reading this entire series in sequence last night. Some of the articles I had read previously. More than once. I've been gardening & learning about soil for a long time. This series really helped me put many of the pieces of the soil & web of life puzzle together. It answered many questions & of course raised others. It gave me confidence that I have been doing most things right & also clarified what else needs to be done. The timing is perfect too. I recently became steward of a 100+ year old family cattle ranch. As far as the soil and plants go, things are already changing for the better.

    Well done indeed. Thanks Dr. Redhawk!!! 

    So I left, I came home, and I ate some pie. And then I read this tiny ad:
    It's like binging on 7 seasons of your favorite netflix permaculture show
