Hello fellow permies,
New to the forum, but not to sustainable and alternate lifestyle living. While I have forgotten most of what I grew up with as a kid. I am looking to revive that in my retirement years. Have been an urban dweller far to long and plan to go back to a sustainable lifestyle. We plan to move from our home in 5 years, so I'm looking to put permaculture back into my lifestyle and practice, in the meantime to prepare for the move that will allow me to do more of this lifestyle. I'm fortunate to have about a 1/4 acre lot at this time to start putting this into practice. I use to raise chickens and look forward to be able to raise fowl and livestock when we move. In the meantime while I'm where I'm at I want to start bee keeping and gardening. One of the things I want to do is to learn to harvest seeds from the garden to plant the following year as well. I'm sure there will be more that I will be able to learn and do before moving and am grateful for this forum to help with my questions as I do my research and learn to get of the grid. What drew me to this site was Rocket stove mass heaters which I have questions about, and am glad that the forum topics cover more than just heaters. Thanks for allowing me to be a member.
I will let 1/10th of the harvest goto seed and fall so as to self-seed the following season. Some people sow in fall/winter too. sure the birds might eat some but they will also eat the pest, works out to be about even.
Iterations are fine, we don't have to be perfect
