Here is the video from Paul's Replacing Irrigation with Permaculture talk. He gave this talk before 140 plus people in Oceanside, CA on September 7th. The talk was a fundraiser for North County San Diego CRFG. It was an overwhelming success and generated a lot of positive responses.

When you were talking about transplanting (ANYTHING) and ALWAYS loosing the tap root, at that time in the presentation, were you talking about only trees (because you specifically mentioned apple trees, I don'y know why), OR did you actually mean everything including veggies?
My (ex)-partner and I used to start ALL of our veggies in a really neat hot-house I build on the flat roof of the addition on our house. I know that veggies do not have as long tap roots as trees, but we never lost any when we transplanted. We even start corn so early that we had corn on the cob for our 4th of July Party's. We lived in Pittsburgh PA, and were one of the lucky few to have almost an acre of land. We grew almost everything we could think of, that we liked. We even started a small "orchard" with 3 kind of apple tree, 1 peach tree, 2 kinds of cherry trees and 3 kinds of plum trees. We were the envy of the neighborhood. Too bad he threw me out, he lost the best thing he ever had. that was several years ago. Now again, almost 3 years later I am looking for a home, got any vacancies?
When I found cob building and permaculture, and several other thing, my whole life changed. Now, i'm just trying to find somewhere new to live it.

He did curse a fig tree when it wasn't bearing fruit. The next day it shriveled up and died. (Mark 11)

But that was just one plant, clearly the wrong spot for it to be in...

Other than that, a lovely presentation Paul! Thanks!
