The wood was collected from around the Abby site, off cuts from constructing the green house, old weathered logs, broken junk poles and brush. A mix of new wood and rotting wood. The logs were stacked perpendicular to the run of the berm.
I planted the following seeds: Buckwheat, Crimson Clover, Alfalfa, Winter Peas, Alsike clover, Rose clover, Common vetch, Red cow peas, cherry pit, English peas, White dutch clover, Delicatta squash, and the requisite dozen Sepp Holzer grains. I also planted 3 each of comfrey and sunchokes.
The wood was sourced from different brush piles and logs near the Wofati. Some needed to be cut down to size using the chainsaw. I believe that they were all pine logs, since that's the primary tree species on the property.
My mulches were a mixture of grasses that I don't know the name of, knapweed, pine branches, and some barley.
“There are no words to express the abyss between isolation and having one ally. It may be conceded to the mathematician that four is twice two. But two is not twice one; two is two thousand times one.”
