    I am Thai, wanna visit my friend on Tucson then visit you to talk about agriculture but unfortunately, I can't coz the COVID-19. Maybe next year I hope.

  • Happy to find your channel. We are doing the same thing with our property in the same area but having trouble finding bulk wood chips that contain the full tree (leaves and wood). Where did you all find yours?

    My 2 cents are to not mix chickens with what you are doing here as they will dig out all the worms and destroy the layers of live in what you are building. Chickens are ok in a contained space but not in your growing areas.

    I'm so glad you haven't nuked your lovely new place with Roundup – the places where I've done that are totally dead under the soil even years later! It might kill weeds but it's death to gardens long term.

    Thats really good identical way to build soil organically . The biggest challenge though is the dry heat but like you said keep them moist throughout the summer or but shade on 'em will do the job.

    Are you going to fill the openings with pottong soil & planting strawberries of herbs?

  • Eleni Demos 2 months ago

    A small compact or sub compact tractor with a front end bucket would work splendidly for your farm. A ripper blade to losen the dirt, bucket to fill the bed in quarter the time. Ripper blade would also ease your grape vine planting for the future. A rip or two per row, perfect. Rippers don't turn soil over so they don't disturb the soil ecology in the same way as tilling. They also decompact the soil much further down, allowing deeper and stronger root systems.

    Good job Guys, those night crawlers or red wrigglers?
    Little ant big bite?
    We have some here called inch ants, for the obvious reason.
    We also have warrior ants of the inch size, big ants huge bite. I'm told that the aboriginal used them as stitches to close a wound, they would pick up the ant by the body force it to bite with its big mandibles then twist the body off. Not sure if it's true but I have heard it from several sources. I know one thing, when they bite it hurts, I have seen a grown man brought to the point of tears with the pain. Lovely place Australia
    Keep up the good work Lori and you too D'waine

    Looks great. I did the same thing on our property but first I laid out cardboard to kill all the weeds, a thick layer of horse manure with bedding and wood chips over the top. Whenever I get Starbucks used coffee grounds I spread most on the wood chips and the remainder goes into our numerous tumbler and static compost piles. All finished compost goes into our raised beds, seed start pods and five gallon pots. I can't wait for the fall to come so that I can put more fig trees into the ground. The first year here I went to the Arizona worm farm and purchased some worms because I could find any when I planted our first trees but now they are everywhere. Great job and thank you for sharing.

    I have found here on my Tempe lot mycorrhiza makes wood chips break down darn near in 6 months or less. I have used whatever kind i can get hands on at time. But man the soil here went in form dead to OMG fertile in about a year. Was super cool! But results vary

    Good Stuff! Ants in your pants….serious stuff out here in the desert! I had an ant bite my middle toe….brought me to the ground! It swelled up 3 times as big ….was out of commission for two days! take Care!

  • homesteadwitchery 2 months ago

    I haven't seen a single worm since moving here. I am considering heading up to Arizona Worm Farm and getting some for my vegetable garden beds and altar garden since I finally got the shadecloth up over the veg, there's about 4-6" of wood chips over the altar garden, and I water twice a day. I know people say that they'll come but I don't know how the heck they're gonna get here. This is gonna be an oasis and we're surrounded by Sonoran concrete!

    So happy to see you wearing a dust mask. Valley fever is real and harsh. Keep being safe!
