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.

Birdies? Uh oh.

I had pics, can't find em. Amaranth is wind pollenated. It has teensy pollen threads inside the flowers. Reminicent of corn tassel threads.

The brightess of color fades as amaranth seed ripen. If you can't id if grain is devrloped? Hold one hand beside stalk. Bump stalk with other hand. Any grain fall? If yes, I may cover with a with paper grocery bag, twist tied to stalk.

More often, in my garden, the color has nearly vanished, seed has already been raided, so I cut the heads and shake the remaining seedz loose in a bag or container.


Perhaps Montana. If you were to expedition, a stop at the Montana Permaculture for a stay at Boot Camp would be a great way to spend a couple months, or more. I don't know if you are familiar with the program permies offers, but it's here in the menu.

Here's a link to Paul's boot camp page.

Well, maybe getting chopped down with a mower, and rhizomes yanked from the ground while trying to irradicate this particular patch wasn't condusive to a healthy plant. One can hope. ;D

It has been a while since I've had trouble with aphids. Never seen the red ones before.

Thanks guys!

What are these red baby bugs? Found here on goldenrod shoots. Shoots also have aphids.

Something to keep in mind, what you can scale today, you may not be able to do iin five years. Shit happens. Ticks happen. But gates or doors can be added too.

Our acre is roughly 100X400 feet. Not conducive for a quick escape. Good thing for me it's not fenced! I'm well past my fence jumping years.
I see only one entance to your acre. Are you able to scale your proposed fence in case of emergency? Widfire in not common here. But it can happen.
