I’ve been watching the “Living Soil Film” on YouTube in bits and pieces over the last day and am enjoying it:
At one point a farmer shares the optimum temperature for microbial activity – 75 degrees – then shares how hot bare soil gets without mulch and how that stops good things from happening. I hadn’t thought about the micro-life in the soil when considering mulch, just the tree roots. I knew it was better for tree roots not to get baked, but now I’ll be thinking about the soil life as well. A good reminder.
Also – women shaving their heads is not a good look.
