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.

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 3, 2015 at 3:23pm

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.

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 3, 2015 at 11:19am

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.

The weedless garden

Landscaping with fruit - a homeowner's guide

The pruning book

Growing fruits - nature's desserts

Thanks, Daniel.
