I just dropped the price of
the permaculture playing cards
for a wee bit.

 

 

uses include:
- infecting brains with permaculture
- convincing folks that you are not crazy
- gift giving obligations
- stocking stuffer
- gambling distraction
- an hour or two of reading
- find the needle
- find the 26 hidden names

I found that my native green frogs enjoy eating them at will. I found that hand picking them everyday while I see them helps as well. They are more of a pain in the house than crop eating especially in a polyculture system, at least in my experience.

Actually, we have had them here in the West for years.  Still trying to find something that will live around here that will eat the darn things.
