The Permaculture Research Institute just published an article with a short 5 minute time lapse video of 500 days of growth in the shady food forest here. The farm is located in a cool temperate region (it rarely gets below 0'C or 32'F) and will only snow maybe once or twice a year. It is fun to watch and I've added a bit of audio commentary. There is even a wallaby snacking on the herbage at point in the video:
Hi Burra. Many thanks, I hadn't thought about doing that and it is a good idea!
PS: I have a huge Meditteranean cottage and herb garden here too which may be of interest to you given the similarities? The summers are just getting hotter down here, so everything has to be ultra hardy.
