I improved my dielectric hygiene this week as well as posting an update on the new asparagus beetle management system.

Weighing a bee hive, how to gather scionwood, and rye as a no-till cover crop are a few of the topics we touched on this week.

Orchard soil health and growing your own root stocks are also highlighted.

Anna Hess and Mark Hamilton are the team behind the WaldenEffect.org blog. They make and sell a new kind of chicken water container that brings industrial poultry technology to the backyard chicken keeper.
