Just spent the week out of town; living in a hotel and rubbing elbows with 'normal' people.

Now I'm spending the evening catching up on podcasts and restoring my sanity by listening to people who actually make sense.

Part 2 of Salatin video podcast:

Just heard the best description of what it is I'm trying to do at my place this year:

"Functional crazy microcosm"

That fits perfectly!!

Some years ago when I was switching to organic methods a farmer said to me "it's very pretty but -- do you have a plan?"

Not really, I just have this thing about empty spaces of dirt and I have to plant something in it. Now Permaculture has given me a reason to plant the entire plant kingdom together in a big happy mess.

It will be interesting to see how it turns out.
 
permaculture is a more symbiotic relationship with nature so I can be even lazier. Read tiny ad:
