I've be fond of the idea of making trails through fields of black berry and then making "blocks" of canes about 8' by 8' so that the whole acre sized mess of berries is easier to harvest. a picking grid so to speak.

Water makes a pretty good mouth wash.

Commercial mouth washes containing strong antiseptics really mess up the natural ecology of the mouth,
so you really are better off with some strong flovoured water.

Really just staying away from sugars, staying hydrated and brushing your teeth with fluoride-free toothpaste should leave you breath all natural & delicious smelling.

I read your post, stumbled on this minutes later. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fm6ZfpGy5oQ
I'm sure you'll do great; pruning is often more scary in your head than it is in reality.

I never thought of ivy that way, but now that you mention it, ivy is without a doubt just as bad as the black berry briers I removed!

I love the woodland strawberry idea. Hopefully I can germinate enough from seed. thank you for your feedback

I just cleaned up a local retaining wall with nobodies permission because the city did a schitty job!
It took about 3 hours to clean up and the area doesn't get much sun and the soil looks like crap.

Now it's January so I have some time to think but what would any of you suggest to plant to keep back the weeds (I know the sticker bushes will just have to be manually removed forever)
and maybe even produce something edible?

I don't own my own land yet but I love permaculure and I just want to get stuff going and people informed so I'm going guerrilla style.

I thought goutweed and ivy on the top could create a ground cover and hens and chicks to grow around the rocks and maybe some pansies would tolerate the area.

IDEAS please!
