I am very thankful to Nicole for merging my two threads into one! I'll do my best now to go on regularely in this thread about my garden (or 'future miniature permaculture food forest').
Soon the new season will start (sewing in pots and planters in the living-room window sil). I have to make new photos and videos to show the changes.

The neighbourhood permaculture project is going well too. But there's another thread to tell and show more about that

The Netherlands had this extraordinarely long hot and dry period. And Meppel was one of the dryest places of all. For exemple: in May not even one drop of rain fell here! And the month of August had some of the hottest days ever measured in the country!
Despite all of this, and the fact I went on a trip during three weeks from July 27 - August 17, my garden looks fine. Here are some photos to show you

the herb spiral in the front yard (being in the full sun for 8 -9 hours a day!

the small 'Hugelkultur' next to the small pond fed by the rain from the roof ... if there is any

the jungle behind the house (much less sunny), with kiwi and sunchokes and tomatoes
