Absolutely awe inspiring, especially given your location. Must have been a huge learning curve.
I have a one year old daughter who we have tried extremely hard to feed a completely organic diet, which is not always easy. I have thought about starting to try and grow some veg but not being a gardener I've never given it a shot.
You have inspired me!
might i recommend Teaming with microbes by jeff lowenfels (thats a link to the PDF, i cant vouch for its safety but i downloaded it and can vouch that the book is there) this is an amazing book that i still havent even begun to digest all the way. great great read! if you like it i recommend getting the hardcover version and keeping it on hand as often as possible cause it really is about as close as you can get to a "bible" for organic gardening.

They are buoys. Plastic balls used as markers at sea. Sometimes they come in on the beaches. For draininage aggregate I have used a lot of oyster and mussel shells. These are good under the soil layer as they provide habitats for small creatures.
They are also good the soil. First you have to fill a bag with shells and run over a good few times with the car. The idea being to crush or powder them. When you mix them into the soil they raise the ph and buffer magnesium just like dolomite does...
