digging in the dirt

I've spent two days this week with the folks from Bountiful Backyards working on turning our front yard, which is shaded by a hundred year old pin oak, from the scraped landscape it was

into something both beautiful and useful. They brought in edible, medicinal, sustainable, and native plants to give our yard a new look and new life.

Next week, the finish touch will be to inoculate the wood chips around the tree with oyster and golden mushroom spores to create a mushroom bed.

I'm tired of hauling wood chips and I'm very excited about what we have set in motion.

That is very cool, Milton. I hope you will keep us updated on the project.
