Videos and posts about Gardening and soils

Below is stuff about gardening, soils, plant varieties, seed saving, biochar and all that sort of fun stuff.  I believe in gardening non-dogmatically.  Adopting someone's system and expecting it to work everywhere is sure to bring some disappointment.  There are a lot of systems and philosophies out there, but to me growing food is about what works and is no place for wishful thinking or ideology.  I experiment to find what works for me in my situation, and I use that.  Every garden, in every climate and every gardener in every season of their life are different.  Context rules the day and adaptability trumps all.  I think it's really useful to get input from gardeners on what works for them, so leave a comment if you have something to say...

Most of the stuff on preserving garden produce in under the FOOD page.
