Permacuture is my new best friend...


A lot has been going on in Florida
plantings and more plantings...


A ton of mulch, fountain grasses
lavenders and perennials...I don't like grass
I'm building a food forest...
a permaculture...


I'm amending the soil and planting
bunches of fruit trees...avocado, papaya,
guava, mamey and black sapote, olive
mango, bananas, lots of perennial spinach
ground covers, pumpkins and sweet potatoes...


I'm planting a forest of edibles and a
local grasses to feed the soil, to add
nitrogen to the sandy surface...


Fakahatchee grass will be chopped and
dropped to help with the recovery...


Lots of bamboos for windbreaks,
Lord knows we have winds...


I brought many artifacts back from Iowa
a few months ago, I am having way too much
fun here...


And this was the beginning, an empty palette...
I'm in love...
