That comment should read, 32% of variation in ecosystem function...

32% of ecosystem function is due to soul diversity.

We support soil biodiversity by avoiding too much pesticide and herbicide, using ground covers and mulches, add plant material to the soil via compost, trench composting, and green manures.

Randy, sometimes it takes me a day or two to respond, especially on a work day. All of your comments should be there. If you look back a couple days, I hope you can see them. The program does not notify me, somI have to sign on before I can view and publish the comments. On Blogspot, the blogger needs to moderate because otherwise there is so much spam and robo commenting. Really appreciate every comment! I approve every one.

Glad you got the much-needed rain! We got some too. Makes me think sbout the ancients, watching the skies with worry, wondering how to please the gods to bless them with essential rain. For the most part, if we dont get the right weather, the gods Kroger, and Jewel, or Aldi and Safeway just need sacrifices of silver and gold.

Well, big surprise--I got 1.7" of rain two nights ago! Man, did we need it. Sorry it missed you, Kathy.

Daniel, I do follow and occassionally comment on your garden blog. Wondering if you receive my comments. I'll check later, and it'll say "no comments posted". But be assured, I enjoy following your reports, especially the photos. Like I always say, they make me envious.

Beautiful Daniel. The time difference always surprises me. It's been dark here for almost four hours.

Kathy, chickens are eating/pooping machines!  Ours never stop doing either.  I think they are good for building soil.

It appears that some butterflies carry wasp DNA that protects them from disease.  The Telegraph.  The wasp DNA comes from parasitic wasps, who inject their eggs into caterpillars.  Usually the baby wasps eat the caterpillar alive, from the inside, killing it.  Sort of zombie caterpillars.  It appears that some caterpillars survived wasp infection, and incorporated the DNA into their own.  Self-genetic modified organisms.  Interesting.
