I have an area in my yard that I'm hoping over the next couple of years to transform into a permaculture food forest or garden. I'm pretty new to all this so I'm hoping for some advice on how to deal with a massive amount of opportunistic Wisteria, Chinese Privet and English Ivy.  They were basically left unchecked for 15-20 years (prior to my residence) in a particular spot in my yard to the point that there are Wisteria vines as big around as my fist (and I'm not a small person!) and a privet bush that had grown to be a 15ft tree and depositing hundreds of seeds (now saplings).  In the areas where we beat back some of the wisteria two years ago, English Ivy has started thriving. Thankfully most of the live wisteria has been cleared from vertical growth only creeps along the ground at this point.

I would love to be able to plant a cover crop in this area this year as I continue observing and planning the entire yard but I'm not sure how thorough I need to be in removing the inground vines or which cover crop may be best.

Thanks for any advice.

Linux Mint is good but it may be too much of a learning curve or you may encounter some hardware compatibility issue. I do this stuff every day and think the best option would be to purchase and install as Solid State Drive to replace your Hard Drive because the Hard Drives is where most bottlenecks occur.  They aren't typically difficult to replace if you buy a $10 adapter and many SSDs now come with a license for downloadable cloning software.

Tell us more about the manufacturer/model of your computer and any specs that you know and I can be more helpful.


typical that my first post on permies is about computers.
