I questioned her about soil diversity and killing it off. She says it's actually beneficial and also puts oxygen into the soil.
Anyone heard of this?

I have acquired both the Bocking 4 and 14 strains and they are getting started nicely. I am still trying to figure out how best to keep them segregated. Also how to allow the deer to eat some of the growth on the Bocking 4 stain which supposedly can be used for fodder while not allowing them to kill it. I realize that once it is established even a large herd of deer probably couldn't kill it, but I am talking about until it is well established. I have some ideas about cages to allow it to grow through but protect it closest to the ground. I just haven't come up with what I yet consider a really creative and reliable means of doing this.
