Hey,
I live in a McMansion in a part of Austin known as "South Dallas". Any Central Texas permies want to come and permablitz my front yard? I have a large corner lot on a busy road in the neighborhood. I'm thinking a dry creekbed swale running from the downspout, fruit trees, perennial veggies and native plants with a Little Free Library stocked with permaculture materials for the most public corner of the yard. AND LESS GRASS!

I'm big on dreams, but low on manpower. I write articles for the community newsletter, but this last time my article on "Attracting Beneficial Insects to your Yard" was replaced with 600 words on maintaining your grass. Grr.

The revolution starts at home. I want to show the neighborhood the beauty of an edible, sustainable landscape.

I've done some on my own - you can read about my projects at http://beanandbee.com/

Fall planting season is coming. Who's with me?

I'm a long way from Austin, but you're welcome to my seed collection. How about some Egyptian walking onions? upland cress? salsify? If there are any seeds you are looking for, let me know and I will check my inventory.

That would be awesome! Egyptian walking onions are definitely on my wish list. Do you have any wild indigo, milkvetch, or yarrow seeds? I'm not very familiar with upland cress or salsify. I have a hot, sunny western exposure and alkaline soil. If you think they would be successful, I'd love to try them!
 
I would challenge you to a battle of wits, but I see you are unarmed - shakespear. Unarmed tiny ad:
