How To Set A Stage for Growing Your Crop Rather Than Weeds? Why Nutrient Cycling Is Important?

Hello! How do you set a stage for growing your intended crop rather than weeds?  Why nutrient cycling is important when we are growing food? 

Weeds love bacteria dominated soils.  What can we reduce weed growth in the soil? Organisms in the soil set a stage for different plants to grow.  Which stage of succession are your intended plants coming from?

It's incredible how these little critters, micro-organisms, have such an important part of our ecosystems. 

Do you know that the most rapid rates of decomposition is under a blanket of snow...I didn't.  What is nutrient cycling?  Why nutrient cycling is important in the soil and growing plants?

Find out all the answers and more in this next videos from Living Web Farms by Dr. Elaine Ingham, where she goes through the secrets of soil life.

I don't know about you, but some stage I have felt like I was only growing weeds.  Then everything started come together after educating myself and taking action (a knowledge without action is wasted).
I am sooo excited and grateful to learn more everyday - hope you feel the same....:-)

Enjoy the videos and happy gardening!
