investigating what is going on here and how I can get more connected in, in preparation for the Great Unleashing!
Yes, that sounds incredible. I would love to do that, and I definitely want to meet Richards wife. I will invite my family up and maybe they can meet everyone! I work until 5pm on Sunday's so i wouldn't be able to meet up until a little later. Talk to you soon!
p.s. It was such a joy to meet you and Pepper, what a sweatheart
I might not be navigating T.W. correctly, or your post was years old, but I recall that you were inquiring about roofing types (for a chicken coop?) and, well, green roofs. I'm pretty whacked out about green roofs.
Ok, let me know what you learn about the lilac fungus...for all I know I may have it too. For now I'm going to focus on the edible fruit trees & shrubs in the discussion, but I know that all life is connected. I hope to soon post a discussion on healing toxic soils & waters in regards to the aminopyralid exposure, that I drafted a month ago...
Hi Jamie! My lilacs also go through a difficult time during the summer months! (brown spots on leaves). But each spring they rebloom! Sometimes they have a hard time living in partial shade from taller trees, especially evergreen trees that produce acid soil. I have some living right under the drip line of some firs & cedars. I spread wood ash around the drip line of the lilacs to increase the soil ph in that zone. I also cut most of my spent lilac blooms to encourage next years blooms.
This time of year, warm & wet seems to welcome the spread of all the fungi, virus, bacteria life forms throughout the garden...I'm trying to enjoy the casual 'wild hairdo' look of the garden instead of getting out the saw and sprays....but I do get concerned about caring for my 50 yr plus fruit trees who continue to share an abundance of fruit even though many other life forms also enjoy them.
