I may give it a go soon on a couple grafts just to see what happens. Will definitely do it closer to spring as well.

Hello. I recently discovered some Callery pears growing several places on the property. I would like to graft some of my other pear trees onto them. Has anyone ever done this in the winter before?

Here’s the weird thing Tyler, the signs are from them. After my acres of right of way were approved as a no spray zone they sent me signs.

I really appreciate all the replies and it’s given me a lot to consider. There are three creeks on the property. One of which would be a great pond. Short of chunking rocks on the low end it’s a project I’m not going to tackle without a tractor. A pond is way up there on my bucket list though! I like the idea of arranging limbs on contour. Most of my limbs other than pine go in Hugelkultur beds. This idea is a great use for pine however!
As far as the right of way.... I did manage to keep them off with their herbicides for a couple of years. Went through all of the proper channels and have it squared away. The problem is none of the guys spraying can speak English and I have to be out there when they come over the hill. It’s an exhausting process. This season I grew sunhemp on it as bioremediation. That stuff is incredible! I threw it on the hard packed clay and shoveled compost on top. Started harvesting yesterday for some rope making experiments.
If any of you want to see what I have going on my Instagram page is Stiller_Permaculture. If you guys happen to see an unused resource in any of the pictures please let me know! Once again, you guys are great ! Thank you

Good morning. I have a small Permaculture property and I’m interested in projects made for one. I’ve planted trees, and perennial food crops. I’ve dug swales and hugelcultures. Now I’m stuck between cutting trees for space and working on an herbicide ridding energy company right of way. I’m already growing mushrooms in the forest. I feel like I am missing something however. I am not opposed to hardwork but I have no equipment which slows things down a good bit. Thank you in advance.

Hello! Does anyone know if oats, alfalfa and buckwheat can be planted together?

I have some chicks that are six weeks old. I want to introduce an adult rooster to the flock before the others become adults. Is it a good time?

Central NC. I had a rooster but he died one month ago fending off some kind of aerial assault.

Good to know. I have lots of big green apple gourds, pumpkins, and various others I can't remember at this hour. I will certainly give them a go on your recommendation. Thank you.

I have a planting area several acres from my home. I want to do some planting but I don't want to waist seed feeding the deer. Are there any regular crops that deer just don't care for?
