      We have a new video about Natural Farming with English subtitles.http://vimeo.com/77920255 - its excellent - the producer/director is also a natural farmer, with a deep understanding of the issue.

      I thought I should post an update on this topic.

      I Just visited a place here in Northern Greece near Thessaloniki, where I planted hundreds of almond and apricot seeds, and a couple cactus pads were placed on the ground - the results were very, very good - while I did not count, it seems that more than 90% of the <http://www.permies.com/t/9758/woodland/man-planted-trees> trees survived the long hot summer – it’s amazing to me - almost a miracle.
      I will continue to monitor to see how they do in the years ahead.

      It appears that the apricot tree is dead - no leaves on it.

      A bit of digging reveals a good size root.

      The root is deep and it feels that it is alive - it does not break when pushed – it’s not brittle.

      Two pads were thrown on the ground, late spring - they were not planted - amazingly they not only survived, they developed roots and sprouted - the possibilities are endless with this plant.

      And finally some pictures of trees with leaves on them - the majority.

      Photos T-1 to T-3
