Temperate Climate Permaculture. http://tcpermaculture.com/site/

The author has numerous articles on temperate climate species. When I first discovered Permaculture, I'd see an article elsewhere on a fantastically marvelous plant/ tree. I'd get all excited, I must have this miracle! Then I discover that this miracle will DIE in a frost, let alone a freeze! I have found this site to be helpfull in choosing species that will survive in my climate.

I am so with you there, but then I look at that website and go, can't grow that, or that or that. Sigh first three plants in the blog; eggplant greenhouse only here, goji berry I managed to kill three seedlings this year, better luck next I hope. and then squash, also marginal early ones make it others are in the greenhouse catagery.

So does anyone know any from a oceanic climate i.e nothing needing over 20C to do anything.

I was just reading a different article (not on that blog) and it said not to plant brassicas until the soil is at 15.7C Well a quick look at the average soil temps where I am shows that I need to plant them... never. the advice given here is to wait until the soil is at 7C

I'm partial to mine: https://mortaltree.blog

But my favorite that first inspired me to start blogging (which I still adore) is Alan Carter's Of Plums and Pignuts: https://scottishforestgarden.wordpress.com

He's way into the rare perennial veg and Andean root crops. He touches on fertility, and methods of forest gardening. He's an excellent writer, and has killer aesthetic. Images on his site are to die for.

Am I allowed to pick my own blog? I'm sure I'm being objective about it...

But in all seriousness I have really enjoyed reading Amy Stross's Tenth Acre Farm - Permaculture for the Suburbs blog. Some great articles and she also has a book published called The Suburban Micro-Farm: Modern Solutions for Busy People that David The Good reviewed on Mother Earth News. I have not read the book yet but David seemed to like it from his review.

Been following Amy's site for a while and just always enjoyed reading it. She has some good articles and I have linked to several of hers in my own blog.

Hm. I really enjoy skillcult.com, the apple breeding stuff especially.

The same info is more digestible through his youtube channel imo. https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCFZ-LGULm1gGhd3uOjiZr-A
