So now the season is over and I've got a long winter to work on indoor projects and plan for next spring.  Before I start on all of that, please let me reflect on the past for a moment.  Roughly 7 years ago I first hear the word "Permaculture".  At first I was curious and of course skeptical of what I was reading, hearing and seeing.   But as the information started to stack up I thought, "Well, maybe this is worth trying for myself." So I set out to learn what I could do, what I would like to do and what I could afford to attempt.  I decided to start by developing a test space for each of the elements that I wanted to work with.  This included annual, biennial and perennial plants, shrubs and trees, as well as chickens, ducks, rabbits, pigs and a guardian dog just for good measure.  So now I've been through a few seasons and I've had some time to put some thoughts together about what permaculture has meant to me.  These are not well articulated thoughts and some parts may be a bit disjointed, but I hope that you are able to catch the overall feel of what I'm experiencing here on my homestead.

It is true that you reap what you sow.  I never thought I would be able to reap so much...

Thank you
