Permaculture is the best thing I’ve ever practiced. A hands off, nature based way of growing food and healing the plant. What could be wrong with that? Well, I’m bored. I’ve been on this property seven years and things pretty much run on autopilot. I occasionally spy a new place to build a small garden or tweak an established one. Since spring is on the way I’ll have more things to do but until then, I’m permabored.

Scott, I have a cure for permabordum.

I am taking a break from the place I spend most of my time when I'm not on permits so I am also somewhat bored.  You can find me at one of these places or some other threads:

I have that issue from time to time with my beekeeping. In some ways it is a “solved” problem, and for me I don’t find it as inspiring as I used to. I have found that taking a step back for a while helps - I come back a few month later with more energy.

I pretty much took last year off from my bees - in large part due to covid - and I’m now more keen on the coming season than I have been in ages.
