i moved out to my property last year. Nice amount of land. A creek, wildlife, trees. The whole lot..... I built 2 hugel beds and if all works out, may do more. But am concentrating more on a food forest scenario. I went farther into country and brought 2 mullein to grow. Did very well this year, and am utilizing everything possible with it. Left base plant to grow. This past summer neighbor across creek came over and asked if i was going to "get rid of my dandelions overtaking land" ummmm thats a big fat NO!! He wasnt happy, so i say stay on your side of creek, as im on a roll over here......sorry. I wasnt nasty, but firm in my answer that im letting nature do her thing so to speak. Im going to try to keep as much native as possible, with additions of lots medicinals, fruit trees, which i planted last yr., and comfrey. Chickens will help out with keeping weeds down, and ill be picking dandys, so.... Anyway,i wish people would just quit worrying about well manicured yards, and get back to beauty of nature.
Permaculture isn't that hard to understand. Sometimes a little bump helps: richsoil.com/cards
