Hello,

I live in Tampa, Florida with my husband in a small house with a yard that I have been slowly shifting to an edible landscaping, veganic permaculture system.  Mostly, I've been specializing in plant systems that grow with little or no input from me which also largely maintain conventional notions of what type of thing ought to grow there.

I have been slowly removing grass in favor of low-growing legumes (perennial peanut and sunshine mimosa), and, now that the area between the sidewalk and the road is well-colonized by them, I am starting to ponder what else to add to that system.  High on my hopefuls list for that is strawberries -- if only they will naturalize and make it through the summer!

omg... do you know of a purple leafed weed with thorns on its nodules that shoots through everything with splintery stickers and shoots up a couple feet or so??

I started a berm in my moms front yard and i'm freaked out about this weed, I'm worried it will ruin everything and the neighbors will get turned off to the design....

what did you do with those weeds during your first year?


p.s. thanks for being a Tampanian who cares
