Good morrow ladies and gentlemen,

The plan is simple. My goal is to collect old threads, squeeze the info out of them, then boil the info down into articles.
However I have come to notice that there are a LOT of threads and to go through them all would take weeks.
So I ask you, oh great readers of the threads, where should I start?

Links would be fabulous, and I'm shooting for simple beginner level stuff.

This one was great.

http://www.permies.com/t/30779/fungi/Outdoor-mushroom-cultivation

There are so many on so many subjects... I haven't even got a third of the way there yet. What specifically are you interested in in terms of priorities? Growies?

Still poking around. The weather here is going from pouring to drizzling every ten minutes with intermittent gusts of wind.

This one
http://www.permies.com/t/13602/organic/Incredible-Amazing-Leaf-Mold

Could probably me broadened and merged with a few others to make a good "organic matter generator - how this soil stuff works" type article.

I'm probably gonna keep on this one. Just how much work were you looking to bite off Jason?

Thanks Landon, and I'm looking for beginner stuff. Somethings you might tell an organic farmer/gardener to increase their yields.
Kind of like a step by step guide to get someone into permaculture. through articles. And I hope to do many. Considering i'm only
working 12 hours a week I have the time

allen that is most certainly a lot of information.

Jason have you seen this?



It was posted somewhere in this labyrinth of forums not to long ago. If you are just looking to turn people on to the Idea that's a great on, and pretty brief. You can really clearly see the contrast between garden and lawn.

Dude is either one of the greats or CGI has advanced way further that I though it'd be able to.

judith i took a quick browse through and that weed-nutrition one looks like a "goer". the other two look good but i think they'll need a bit more effort to get an article. altho i guess being a bad gardener and eating weeds kind of go together. either way there's a lot of good research there.

landon. no i haven't seen it but i will later when i'm free. by the way "sunrich" is an amazing name for a gardener.

so i guess an update is in order....
I've sat down in a cafe. i have my forum selected, i have my nore book open, and i have nothing else to do all day.
~but I am far from in the mood to be conscience let alone be thinking. should probably get some sun.
.....however i shall get something done today even if i must consume that foul substance known as coffee

what am i getting at? i'm actually doing stuff


p.s. I just realised this is exactly the same as homework. i hated homework. younger jason is very confused as to why i'm willingly doing homework.
blah blah blah. i did mention i'm not with it today, right?

Jason - homework is what teachers force you to do, and they judge it to see how good you are.

This is different. This is you choosing to do something with the aim of making a difference to the world. And it's a chance for you to shine, in your own way, in your own time. Go for it!

after 4 days of struggling to get an of this article done i've decided to quit...
I'll write a story instead, the second i made that decision everything just flowed out. Got a page and half done in an hour (pretty good for me) until I was distracted.
I'm going to call it.... "the boy who grew weeds instead"
the ideas simple enough.... boy can't garden, people are no help (lil boy can't till blah blah blah), asks woodsman for help, woodsman gives info, lil boy uses info to grow garden and some are weeds.

going to have permaculture tidbits...
no till
use animals
chop and drop
weeds are good
helpful bugs
.....any ideas? what should i add? what plants should i talk about?

p.s. Burra it no longer feels like homework
