My question is : the direct hot sun and the high temperature arent going to influence the breaking down process?
such nice patch by the way. I dont think the would survive in the climate I had (now moved to another place) in the area and with no shadow nor much water to use.
Anyway to be back to the fennel mulch, I think that is true is better for mycelium, but I think for use it' easier to spray a liquid that to mulch around already enstablished plants, at least in my bed set. But I'm not sure the value of P would be transfer at the same rate.
Yes, good point. Feed the soil, and it will feed us. Nice simple mantra that has real-world implications. Avoid the monoculture mindset and travel back a few hundred years where manure, and fish emulsion were standards...

You can feed the plant, you'll get a big plant. Feed the soil, you'll get a big healthy plant.
Also there are no trees in this field and we are in the sicilian countryside where is starting to getting pretty hot.
