Just wanted to make my officialish introduction post to the Permies forum.

What I'm doing: Not much.

I've got a small permaculture project I've been working on a hillside behind a house I rent. To get to it I have to climb over a wall or gain access through a neighbor's property but its mine to play with and learn from. Its my little windmill to tilt at every week, and I consider anything I can get to grow out there to be a victory.

I'm not really a forum guy, I'm a podcast person, so I consume most of my media while doing other things, and I don't really anticipate posting much. Occasionally though I feel compelled to say or write something, until I see it articulated in a much niftier fashion than I could have. I've really enjoyed the wealth of information here, and it makes me happy.

Welcome to Permies, Max (even if you've been here longer).

I originally thought when I joined a short time ago that I would do a lot of reading of past posts and slowly start to add. That went out the window the first couple of days. Too much cool stuff to "talk" about and ask questions of, or give my old, hillbillie, jarhead spin on. Who said that drinking from a fire hose can't be fun?

As an aside, I spent the hottest winter I ever experienced in Yuma back in the early 80s. Nice place, even with all that sand and other deserty stuff.

Hi Max and welcome to Permies!

Glad to see another desert rat here. There are actually many of us (including some from Yuma) already here!

Sometime you'll have to post some pictures of your plot so we can see what you have to work with.

Jen in Phoenix
