You can't insert the video from that website. I selected the youtube button in the lower right-handed corner of the video, which sent me to the youtube website to watched the video. Then I selected the share button which causes a drop down menu  showing a code. I copy it, then return to out the SFG website, choose the above youtube icon, paste in the code and select return or enter on your keyboard. The SFG website will automatically do the rest of the insertion process.

Fungi

Not sure if this is new or not:
Teaming with Fungi: The Organic Grower's Guide to Mycorrhizae (Science for Gardeners) by Jeff Lowenfels


I know Jimmy Cree is a big fan of the teaming with Nutrients and Microbes.  I even bought those and read them based on his recommendation.  I don't recall this one being mentioned before.  I just got an e-mail from Amazon advertising this book.  I'll probably get it myself here soon, just thought I'd share that it was out there.

Sorry about dealy for this as I've been away and that i phone just cant hack it the way my computer can, ( or maybe it's me)
Yes for reading Teaming with Fungi....There are some detailed parts that are very boring, I read through them anyway and only a scientific mind could pick it up, in my opinion.
However I am now coming into the nitty gritty of the book.. And is it ever interestin, same as the other 2 books Jeff has written..It seems fungi has been around since time began, and plants cannot survive with out some kind of it.
I definitely recommend all three books for anyone who enjoys gardening, plant life or tree life..

I'm reading Teaming with Microbes for the second time. It's amazing what you can pick up on a second reading that was glossed over during the first. Like that slugs can travel up to a mile during the night. Gross!  Anyway I was wondering if anyone following this book is leaving the inch of compost on top  of the SFG rather than mixing it in? It seems to be what is suggested by the book.

Thought about leaving it on the top. Then decided to turn it over here and there. If I don't turn somewhat, eventually the vermiculite and peat moss will just be in the lower stratum. ??

That's exactly what I was wondering about. I can't quite figure out what to do. It's almost like the two methods don't fit together.

Well, what would Mel do? The main thing is adding quality compost. Jimmy is top dressing and Camp mixes it in by the wheel barrow. Both have great crops. Mel got it right with his Mel's Mix and I don't even know if he thought of the role of microbes and nutrients. Light, fluffy and rich.

I have put 3 inches of compost on top. The earthworm and microbes devour it by bring it down into the soil and mix it for you. literally you'll see the compost disappear while you have the ground cover from sunlight. weed protection, temperature control and free mixing of fertilizer by microbes and worms while keeping the soil web undisturbed, building it underground cities.
