"dirt: the erosion of civilizations" david montgomery_________the pioneer shave made progress this late season...the bushhogged field wasn't going to stand empty for long...thistles are trying to bloom in october and the false chamomile ( an aster family member...which makes sense given the time of year ) has succeeded...some of the other "weeds" are going to seed for the spring...and the plant in the sixth photo is queen anne's lace if it's anything...and the project that killed the crop of no til soy beans that would have been here this season? so far it's the gravel bed of a road that curves around to end in another pile of fine gravel...a curved road going nowhere...i'm thinking anything like a building isn't going in until spring.
