I had a number of butterflies with some native plant I planted at the output of the small pool in backyard.  I have to look up the variety.  Light pink huge flowers.

Gave up on tower of wood chips here in TN.   We have those fire ants here too, borax + sugar and a little water.   Have ants in house, borax + sugar, H2O. took care of problem.  When I see them outside I mess with their piled up soil carefully.  I have mushrooms popping up in lawn.   Have a huge pile of wood chips delivered in spring?  It is just sitting there, throw an occasion weeds on it.

I have never made biochar here.  I have a wood chip pile.  I know biochar is burning combustibles with very little oxygen feeding it.  I be nice to biochar locally.

a year or two ago  I planted I forget, italian rye grass that will die, any how planted a 4 foot x 4 foot square of it, It was beautiful about 16 inches high.   Then 'motel' the neighborhood dog laid down right in the middle of the patch, and flattened most of it!
