I'm considering taking a PDC course, but don't want to take it too much before I actually score some land, so I can at least start using what I'm taught, and don't lose it to the neuron jungle in my head. However, I just started thinking that the training might give me better insight into what land to buy. My sister-in-law has some land in NE Mississippi, which is grown out in timber right now, not old growth, just pasture land allowed to convert, which MIGHT be acid clay soil for a foot or two, with alkaline clay under that. I only know that from reading a soil map for the area, not actually testing the soil. Anyway, any opinions on this? Right now all I have to practice on is a 10x12 concrete patio that gets limited sun. Can't find any community gardens in my area.
