Hey there Alexander! I just saw this and don’t check these much because about 95% of these comments are spam. Please go to this link and hit the ‘buy now’ button to register and hold your spot in the course.

I’ll go ahead and email this info to you as well so I hope you get it! Feel free to email me with anymore questions.

Thank you,

Would there be any advantage to inulaste the soil surface with, say, bags filled with pine needles or even just a tarp to keep as much heat from being lost as possible?


Yes, mulching the soil surface is always a good idea. A very wise soil scientist, Elaine Ingam, once said, “Mother Nature abhors bare soil.” The mulch will help stabilize the soil temperature and moisture as well as encourage soil life of the soil food web.

Spot on with this write-up, I actually believe that
this website needs a lot more attention. I’ll probably be back again to see more, thanks for the info!
