More on the video.

That's a very handy idea to tie strings to the ribs on the raised bed.  Last year I used bamboo.  I think the string is better. 

I need to work on the ground between my raised beds.  I liked having grass there, but Ning doesn't like it, needs mowing.  I have been putting down woven polyethylene - also known as repurposed dog food and chicken food bags.  I would like chopped tree trimmings if I can get it cheap.

Joan, thanks a lot for the video.  I have not seen it before.  Listening now.  It would have saved me some effort if I saw it years ago.  But the joy is in the learning.

I'm half way through.  I wondered about him adding earthworms every year - if they are in the soil, I thought all you need to do is provide a good environment and they will find it and proliferate.  My earthworm population increases when I add compost or do in-ground composting, and decreases in the summer.

Still listening.

Barbara, OOppss, I should have said your local power company and birds make a good team.

Daniel, thanks for the lead to Lee Reich.  I like his methods and the ways he presents his ideas. I watched information loaded video

Barbara, had a bit of a problem figuring out what CPS means to you.

Looks like your local power company and birds make a good tam for planting hedges.

I miss The Gardener Guy. I liked that show.

No, 4 books.  I'll check them out as they become available.

I found 3 of his books at my library.  The two I'm most interested in are out until the 26th of this month.

His web site is LeeReich.com

I have Grow Fruit Naturally, The Pruning Book, and Uncommon Fruits for Every Garden.  That last one might explain some of my variety choices - paw paws, persimmons, Asian pears, mulberry.  I literally wore out The Pruning Book.  It is falling apart.

Good winter reading.

I just bought a used copy of Doc and Katy Abraham's "The Green Thumb."  Old old book. I used to listen to them on the radio, years ago.   It's interesting to read and compare to modern practices.  I think some of their recommendations are still good, some are not.

I always check public library first - and yep, they have Lee Reich books.  Put them on hold and will pick up next week.

Thanks, Daniel.
