Hi there!

Just recently joined the site after caving into the suggestions of some others.

I'm from Jacksonville, Fl. (zone 9a)

Just wanted to share a bit about ourselves and our story. Me and my partner moved here a year ago to help my partner's grandfather during his final days. His home sits on 3.48 acres, and he's given us free reign to do as we please with it! 11 months later, we're drowning in chickens, goats, pigs, and more! plus, the gardens.

I briefly agriculture in college, so I of course took to conventional gardening here. Our soil was ****. Nothing took immediately (and what did dealt with weeks of stress, disease, pests, etc.). I stopped consulting my high school agriculture teacher and used the internet. I found some of Dan Barber's speeches online, and from there it was a whirlwind of wanting to find MORE!

It'd only been about 8 months since I began practicing permie practices here, but my plants look look much healthier (even after that pesky hurricane)

That isn't to say lots of mistakes were human error. I laugh at when I think of how I dis-regarded our soil, and would just plant willy-nilly into the full sun.

Just wanted to share photos from my little 'permaculture patch'

Curious to see what my fellow permies grow in the 9a hardiness zone, I've been reluctant to plant much this fall!
