    John,  I live in Phoenix and I have talked to a variety of local nurseries, no one has rock dust.  My wife has been involved in the health food industry and states that Alfalfa is a full spectrum vitamin and mineral.  With this in mind, we tried thinking lateral on your full spectrum soil.  We tried putting Rabbit pellets mixed in our soil this year.  My plants look healthier and taste incredible, however I have no research to prove if this helped.  The Rabbit food has many of this full spectrum properties, What do you think about this, if you use an organic brand?

    Getting the water UNDER the soil, keep the moisture IN the soil will be what is important, especially in this location.  Wood chips down over the grow area (and or ground) will ensure the moisture stays in the ground the longest without an aqua-jet system.  I barely watered this year and had PHENOMENAL growth in my garden :)

    In case you didn't know John, the Hummingbird Moth…which I think is real neat…is what lays the eggs that produce the Green Tomato Horn Worm. I really liked having them around and even liberated a few from my garage until I learned  that they were an arched nemesis to my tomato plants.

    Okra grows amazingly well, especially in Central FL. This past summer I was feeding 3 adults every 2 days 1 meal of pan fried okra with 9 plants from my raised beds. This year I am going to try growing them in some Dutch Bucket Hydroponics as well as my raised beds. The goal is to have enough to feed us fresh Okra and also enough to pickle and keep on hand.

    Hi John, I'm up in Western New York. If your ever find yourself up Niagara Falls way. There is a worm farm (Worm Power) in Avon N.Y. (about 90 min. away from the Falls) that you may want to tour. They use dairy cow manure that has been composted. It has been tested by Cornell University with good results. Niagara Falls is one of the worlds 7 wonders John. Just sayin'  I can't believe how cheap you get AZOMITE. It costs me $1.00 a pound.

    You should try getting a separate mic for you when you're talking in a room with people. The talk is really interesting so far (i havent finished the video), but the noise in the room from different people is distracting.
