They talk about soil freezing, and how Sepp is proud when the soil biology is still active in the wintertime. Sepp lists good green manure crops. They talk about the concept of putting things to bed in winter. They talk about hemp and stinging nettles, and stabilizing slopes with deep rooted plants. They discuss terracing, and the pros and cons of farming in valleys with their floods. Kelda talks about trying to sell locally.
