      Hi Michael,

      How much land are you growing on, if you don't mind me asking?

      Also, what are some examples of your carbon imports? Do you use
      things like cane or pampas grass?

      of "normal" vegetables and fruit trees, I have free range Chickens,
      and hatch some of the eggs, to raise for meat Chickens. I do import as
      much organic material as I can get for free, I use Daikon most of the
      year as a lettuce substitute, as some varieties have lettuce like
      leaves,etc, etc,
