      Freeze drying your harvest – is it for you?

    Seems pretty expensive compared to other options.

    I built a solar dehydrator for much less, with much more capacity, and zero operating cost.

      Nitrogen Fixing Plants – I Need A Solution

    There are many other nitrogen fixing plants. They are worth growing.

    Some of my favorites are:

    Indigo

    False Indigo

    Wild Licorice

    Black Locust (can be invasive)

    Autumn Olive (can be invasive, OK to plant if it is endemic in your area)

    Also, N-fixers are often mixed with an innoculant before planting. It’s not 100% necessary as the bacteria may already be present, but it ensures good N-fixing.

    Often they are planted as sacrificial plants, even the perennials.

      Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti

    I thought it was worth a try.

    All this virtual stuff is worth nothing compared to real, on the ground relationships.

    Maybe someone will speak up still…
