A few weeks ago I started to write up a report on "My Great Seedball
Experiment". One thing led to another, things got out of hand, and
the result is that I have two versions.
The very short version is that in early spring of 2002 I made and
spread a LOT of seedballs in my yard. Almost a year later I'm still
waiting and watching for the first plant to come up.
The very long version turned into a major revision of my personal/professional
website -- more than 50 new pages, about 40,000 words of text, couple
dozen illustrations including seven tables from "The Natural Way
of Farming", a lot of analysis of Fukuoka's method and principles
trying to figure out how to apply them to my (or anyone else's) patch
of land. The pages are now posted at:
In a way, those pages grew from those seedballs. Perhaps in the long
run they'll turn out to be the best kind of harvest.
You are all invited to come for a visit. Comments, suggestions, and
questions would be appreciated.
