Lovely!  I truly enjoy learning about all things permaculture.

I was excited to check out this other source with great hopes of ordering from them only to discover they are not taking orders atm. My email query came back from a mailer daemon. So back to the scythe company (with its six week lead time) I went. Hopefully by the beginning of July I will be happily mowing my yard with my new scythe.

Still the  marugg website is very informative and includes a pretty comprehensive and entertaining ebook on Scything.  I highly recommend checking it out.

Woohoo... I have wool socks that need darning. I may even have some sort of wooden thing that will work in place of the mushroom.  Starring the email.  I'll Be Back...

Hi Dr Sharol and everyone!  The gifts of the earth and herbs are so comprehensive.  I'm looking forward to reading your book and  learning more about these amazing treasures.  God bless you! Anita

I don't know what your entire situation is , but my inclination would be to fence it and put goats on it after harvest. They'll clean up the unwanted things and won't mind the thorns. Then you could plant and rearrange to your hearts content and the Elderberries should come through with flying colors, happier for the haircut, no?!?

These are by the way only thoughts.  I am just beginning to making a foray into the world of all things Elderberry.  Can't wait to see what you do!

No huckleberries here but will be planting some real elderberries, serviceberries and hazelnut soon.  Will that do for a pie? I could make a real one to bring to the PDC.  🤔😏😁😁😁. Maybe elderberry cordial would be a better option. 😘
Have a lovely day everyone!
Hi Kelly 😁
The other scientist's name is Monica Gagliano

If you quick sign up for the grow network 2019 summit you may get in on the last day of replays. (Free yet today and only $150? I think to buy the whole package of seminars, including one from Wheaton Labs!  Well worth it!)
Hello everyone.
I have some thoughts which may or may not be helpful and which may not be allowed (won't be offended if the world-dominating folks remove my tiny ad 🤔😏😘)

1) Personally I have appreciated the pain relieving properties of wild lettuce but I've never tried planting it so don't know if it minds being cultivated.

2) I heard somewhere that if you first soak your seeds in your own saliva, the things you are planting will produce the things you need.

3) And finally the tiny ad: Marjory Wildcraft's Grow Network 2019 had a couple of speakers which you may find interesting.  Patrick Jones, Vet and Naturopath is a veritable fount of knowledge when it comes to herbs and plant properties. She also had another speaker who is doing research in plant biology and communication.  I think you would find her work fascinating.  I will get back to you with her name in a bit, provided I can find my way back

(I apologise for not addressing you by name.  It's been a stressful year and my memory cells are weary so even though I just read your posts, I don't remember your name.  Kelly maybe?). Anyway, good luck.  I'm sure this amazing neighborhood would be happy to help you financially through go fund me or something like that.
