Now 21 years in the making!
If you do not know the tale, it is here on the Home page. Now 21 years after my conviction for making compost on “protected” farm land, in a town that proudly proclaimed itself to be defenders of the environment, I am sitting in Paradise where anything that will grow here (in zone 5) does extremely well, 3 acres of private gardens and orchards on an expanding layer of rich, dark soil. Dead leaves made that rich soil. The gardens are surrounded and protected by trees (mixed hardwood and softwood). My garden often does not freeze during the first (in autumn) or last (in spring) cold nights (when the rest of the town’s gardens freeze).
