Yes! I got it, too! Any chance you can include these ID queries on a regular basis? And maybe some of these would make great postcards--hint, hint!

Hi Anna and Mark,

Always nice to read about your success :).

I have a small library of 'plant' books. And I am getting better at identifying common weeds. Particularly edible ones.

I keep wondering exactly what 'animals' add to the garden to make its productivity increase so much? Plant stuff -> animal -> plants and the plants grow 2-3 times better!

Also, the animals grow 2-3 times 'better' [more mass and fat].

warm regards to you both,
