Excerpt: According to Bill Mollison's imitating a forest floor: In raised bed filled with 10in-high leaves from nearby trees, made two pockets, filled with store-bought topsoil from GA, planted a seed and watered. Shall receive sunlight from sunrise to 1400hrs. Will be watered as needed to keep moist. Note: raised bed is over pure sands.
A plant or group of plants that is living can be presumed to be in the right conditions. A caretaker considers the conditions, changes them as necessary or other actions are taken. True caretakers aren't embarrassed by mistakes so they share what works and what does not work. The trees and plants that give product will stand out and it's caretaker's techniques can be viewed from their logs.
In other words, success can only be measured by the pile of failures we stand on.
Share what works and does not work. If your plant or group of plants gives food, you will be noticed by others. Logbooks unlimited.
