I was wondering if you are still attemping to do permaculture on a shoestring..as right now should be the time you are searching around for people dividing things, cuttings, and seeds that you can be getting from friends and neighbors.
I know that my plants are beginning to yield seeds, needing dividing and are ripe for cuttings..at my place..so i'm sure they are in your neck of the woods.
also now is when some places are overflowing with exesses..like soil additives..and the stores here have just begun to discount garden things, summer clothes and stock fall items..
just a reminder.
Bloom where you are planted.
