Good reading, all. I have found some success with soil blocks. They allow transplants to not get root bound, but there is a learning curve to the methods. Some seeds to well in the 3/4" blocks, some require bigger blocks. I try the smallest so I can save space on the limited transplant shelves I have. https://www.johnnyseeds.com/tools-supplies/seed-starting-supplies/soil-block-makers/
Welcome Dr Sharol. I just recently made marshmallows for the first time. I know the plant althaea officinalis is probably in your book. Some people hot steep and some cold steep the plant for maximum extraction of beneficial properties. I was using it to treat a chest cold and general inflammation. What is your recommendation for steep temperature? Looking forward to learning more about your book!

It is so exciting to be in that place where people are receptive to inquiry. I am a newbie flower/vegetable grower, graced with an open-minded community of buyers and growers. There are good examples of organic and beyond organic growing practices around here, but at some point I realized I have to take the time to get my head wrapped around my piece of land and how to embody my ideals and interests into my operation, rather than just seeing how others are doing things. After reading some of what Wheaton Labs teaches, I want to head more toward that wild meandering composition, rather than the straight rows of kale where I fight the cabbage leaf moth larvae, notorious to growers around here. Looking forward to being a part of this conversation.

Hello Darrell. Thanks for taking the time to participate in this community. I am presently a market gardener on a very small scale. Am interested in how to make it more "Perma-".
