Ooh I haven't read this, but thanks for posting this! We are reevaluating our garden strategies in our new(ish) house now that we've been here a year and we realize how shady most of the yard actually is, and how much of it is eaten up by the septic system pipes that aren't supposed to have anything put over top of them, so I have added this to my list to check out.
