As I monitor the wood stove to push back the cold morning and prepare to do some more garden plans it occurs to me how wonderful it would be able to have a fire side chat with John Jeavons. He is one of the founders of Biointensive agriculture a mixture of different cultures small farming techniques  first developed by  Alan Chadwick. One of the techniques considered is calorie farming which I briefly wrote about yesterday. The only holding back from fully using this systems is  it concentrates on the vegan diet. It would be great to show him my plans and receive suggestions but also be able to listen to his story but second best would be the ability to attend one of his workshops.

I think I should really check the material I have from GROW BIOINTENSIVE before further planning. It is warming up some more planning. It is hard not to start planting now but I know from experience it is better to wait.
