Subject: [fukuoka_farming] Update on Trees n New Video
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.
