Great information

I am a 40 year landscape designer and learned numerous ways to grow foods even better!
Good read.

At second glance

I scanned through this book when first received and did not think it would help me progress my own skill set. Then ended up of year took over and I set it aside. THEN I went back and realized how much this information can help me. And I’m reading in detail. Fallen in love and can’t wait to put most of it into practice.

good stuff

Good articles, few years old but still relevant. Updated articles with new tech and research would help.
