    Lots of interesting info to utilise.

  • Adreena Carr says:

    Our home faces the south and so the garden ends up receiving a lot of sun evenly throughout the day. However, with the surrounding trees, we have a few microclimates that are a lot cooler and the ground is even softer because water retention is more prominent there. I wish we could keep the clovers in the yard though. They help with levels of nitrogen, correct?

    • Jesscy says:

      {HHA Coach} AWESOME for nitrogen! And a glorious ground cover for so many ways. 🙂 It can cause fertility issues in sheep with long term grazing. Not sure if that’s something handy you need to know or not.

  • Stephen Haley says:

    My property being coastal is very flat. I use trees, bushes and structures as wind and sun breaks to allow different plants to grow better. Even in an individual bed I tuck a plant wanting cooler temps or dappled shade behind a plant that wants full sun and heat, such as Basil under Tomatoes.

  • Todd Barber says:

    I didn’t understand the purpose behind Bill’s suggestion of placing stacks of rocks around the boarder under the tree? Can you clarify what is happening there? Thanks!

  • Esther Verschoor-Lechien says:

    very interesting, what plant did you mention around minute 6:40 to act as a wind break?

  • Loren Vansant says:

    This was super interesting, and I love that we can use microclimates and create them to give ourselves and our lands more opportunities to grow, become more open and help even lower costs.

    love that despite overall climate, there are micro-climates to allow variety and to work with for maximum results and energy conservation
