This is my raised garden bed for the year. It has corn, cucumbers, peppers, and another vegetable (can’t think of it). Check out a video of the build here.
This is my wonderful source of foraging. I’m lucky to have Amber Westfall living very close and have been fortunate enough to attend one of her ‘plant walks’.Most of what I know about foraging plants in this area has come from her.This is her introduction to her weed eating addiction :
Build your compost pile right where you use it – in the middle of your garden, with a keyhole garden.
1 year on from my Walden experience of living off-grid in 100 sq ft for 1 year in 2 countries, 2 continents, 2 hemispheres, I have returned to living in a house. The experience influenced my choice of house and it is a modest 1500 sqft, which is still too large but was the smallest I could find at the time. Houses have gotten larger and nothing under 50 years old seems small. But what I have retained from the experience? what have I discarded as impractical? Thoreau spent 2 years...
This year was very wet. The side of the yard that I normally place my garden was wet 3 weeks past Easter. I had to go to the driest part of the yard next to the bedrooms.

Set aside 2 hours to tie together a lot of ideas about collapse, soil degradation,peak oil, peak soil, the inevitable failure of big-ag, history worth knowing and practical knowledge about sustainable, organic, food forestry on an industrial scale using the (patented!) STUN method – Shear, total, utter, neglect. Lots of great ideas which can be applied on any scale. I now see that a perennial, 3 dimensional ‘garden’ will always outperform annual crops and is the be...
Spring has sprung but it is still a bit to cold outside. Hopefully the beans make it. So far everything inside the green house is beginning to take root and showing signs of growth. The little hobby type green house is not heated so the nights are dropping into the low 40’s and the soil temp is barely holding at 60ish degrees. http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=UEc-i3LQNbkHere is a short video of the garden so far. I’m learning how to use youtube so quality is questionable.I hope eve...
