That was a hoot! Thanks Jack, and everyone who submitted questions.
All you needed was some guy trying to run you off the road and we’d have an old school mobile studio show. Good stuff. We used to have a forklift that we used around our place. So many things you could hey done with that thing. No earthworks, but storing everything on pallets made moving things around a breeze.
Thanks Jack! Great to have you hang out with us Zello folks for a few hours. Next time expert council ?
Jack mentioned an apple tree that will grow from seed and be good eating without grafting. Does anyone know what that apple tree name is?
The question was: “• 5 plants to propagate to sell in a budding nursery business?”
Notable mostly for reproducing “true to type” which is part of the reason Jack recommended it iirc.
Regarding the TSP Copper Round, I was on vacation in AZ last month and visited Jerome. In the display case were 5-10 TSP Copper Rounds (I bought 2).
So there were some left. I dont know the name of the shop.
Response to composting meat:
I used to work at a confinement hog farm. We had a big pile of sawdust in the back ringed in by round hay bales. Dead hogs and other organic material would be buried in there for a year or two. When spread with a manure spreader, even the bones would just crumble. Same general method the Salatins use as well, but I believe they tend theirs better.
Just so this isn’t limited to farm scale, the root of this is if you balance your carbon and nitrogen, it works. To balance meat and expired animals (high N and moisture), you need a very high carbon source (IE sawdust/woodchips) to balance this or a lot of something with a lower carbon content.
Re the road noise question plant Moringa oleifera……maybe. If it’s too close to the road, it may accumulate too many toxins for your liking, but it does grow really fast
