Joy discovered Permaculture in 2015. Thanks, Paul! And suddenly the vast expanse of grass began to shrink. Her hubby is appreciative, as mowing is not fun for her guy.
Joy is designing her permaculture paradise from the edges. Fumbling and stumbling all the way. She successfully grows weeds and a few fruits and veggies in the humid Mid-south.
Officially Zone 7b, according to personal obsevations I live in 7a, SW Tennessee

My poor baby maples have never received so many malevolent glares as they have this year. They thank you Pearl, ever so much.

Take a peek at these bush cherries from Edible Acres. A quick read shows 5 varieties ranging from 3 feet to 8 feet tall.

I got pictures to load this morning too. One at a time, but it did it.
Thanks, Jay, I checked them again. This morning I witnessed sunbeams kissing my babies! Yes, the sun does have further to travel, they will get sun for the needed 6 hours in a few weeks. I think one branch coming down will do it. Good idea. It's not as bad as I imagined. They will stay where they are. Yay! less work!

Thank you for holding my hand.

We just came home with 2# of beautiful fresh shrimp on ice.
All 26 of them...    13 shrimp per pound! Holy cow batman these are some super colossal size shrimp.
The ziplock bag they were in has a temperature monitor to let you know they are still fresh and safe to consume!

From Aquaprawnics? Awesome!

One note about sunchokes, one season of mowing killed my 3-year-old patch. Mowing was assigned elsewhere, and they were gone when I thought to see how prolific they were that early fall. So, if they aren't actually in a bed, not quite so unkillable. The patch had been 4 feet wide by 30 feet long.

I've seen cattails growing in a roadside ditch that appeared to get really dry in our seasonal drought. I never stopped to verify how dry it was to the touch, but at 25 mph, visually, it matched hard concrete clay. During the rainy seasons, there were a couple of inches of standing water.

Well, there are two of them.  They haven't grabbed hold of the trellis yet.

I planted them at what I thought was just outside of the edge of shade of a tulip poplar fefore leaf out. Nope. They are in the shade.
Ooops. If a plant is under 18 inches tall, how much clay do I need to excavate if I want to move them to full sun? I want to give them the best opportunity to succeed, as I am pushing it's zone.
