      Hi Richard,

      Have you come across Dr Teruo Higa and 'Efficient Microbes'? I've just bought a product from the web site below and intend to try a little when I get back to my land in January.

      Subject: [fukuoka_farming] Hello

      I don't think that I have ever introduced myself although I have
      lurked on here for a while. I live in N. New Mexico about 20 mi north
      of Santa Fe in a semi rural area.

      Gardening has been a real challenge due to the harshness of the area
      and the lack of water. The soil in my yard varies from area to area
      but it is sandy and nutrient poor. Underneath is a hard pan.

      I moved here from Ventura county in Calif about 8 years ago. Back
      there I was spoiled. You could just throw vegtable seeds in the
      ground and they would come up, now problems.

      My first year I tried to plant squash of different kinds but some
      rather nasty bugs (squash bugs) killed all of it. I wouldn't use
      pesticides anyway but I was told that these bugs actually flourished
      on malathion anyway.

      The next year different squash that we had bought at the market and
      thrown out in the yard came up on their own. So this is how it has
      been. I do mininal digging but really there seems to be a process of
      natural selection. That is nature selects what will grow. Trying to
      get exotic things to grow is too much work.

      Although I don't prescribe to any particular method, except intuitive
      gardening, I find my ideas seem to be merging allot with what is
      discussed here. Regular organic farming does have an impact on the
      natural processes even though it is more benign than chemicals.

      I would like to no more about how micro organisms operate within soil.
      I believe that they are the key to understanding allot about small
      footprint gardening.

      I like the article in your files section on wild plants and their
      nutrition. I have been think that in the spring I want to encourage
      more of these to come up such as dandelions, lambs quarters, etc. I
      want to find out more about half wild plants and their nutritional
      benefits. What is healthy for me is healthy for my yard.

      Yours Richard Norton
