The Dirt Forge
by William Alexzander Mowry
I have a theory on how to grow a better puffball. Have you heard that when a wild fire begins, many plants grow in the burnt patch because of the nutrients caused from the fire. Perhaps if you could try to burn a controlled path of fire and cultivate puffballs, or really any other plant, on your own garden you could have better luck at growing plants.
I had much trouble growing corn in my mom's home garden. We could not grow anything in our garden that was too complex. So I had the idea of either burning off a patch where you want to grow your crop, or you could experiment with something I've named the "dirt forge". The dirt forge is a forge that burns the soil with fire, so the soil has all the nutrients it'll need to survive the crop season. I have thought of many different ways to build this forge. Please email me sometime if you could or have any luck with the puffballs or any other crop you find yourself growing.
