So beautiful! I love this thread. This is a photo of the fruit of a solanacea type volunteer that is abundant this year in part of my garden. It very closely resembles husk cherry but I'm not sure.

Pretty though.

there is some lovely red clover gone to seed in the foreground there.

New to permies. Thanks for all the great pics. Here is my first contribution. Even though my soil was horrible (long story) in theses beds I did get the Opalka tomatoes and Red Marconi peppers to produce nicely... not so much for my other tomatoes and peppers.

Love this thread because I love pictures! They give me so many ideas. BTW, to the Meyers family: you said more could be found on your blog, but when I went there, I was denied access. Seems one has to be invited to read it. Could I please get an invitation? Thanks!

I love the fall harvest. Below is a picture of this Sunday's goods. 52 pounds of tomatoes. Still working on canning it all. There is nothing finer than enjoying the fruits of your labor. Enjoy!

nice thread, and some really nice gardens you have there

I thought this might be a good place for me to introduce myself and show you some of what I did the last year

I'm from Austria, Central Europe, and have a Garden of about 1800m² in which I am growing lots of different vegetables, mushrooms, herbs, fruits and berries

But enough for the talk, here are some pictures from my garden

Welcome to permies Florian, your garden is lovely
What kind of fungi are they? I'm especially fascinated by the white blob hugging the tree!

thanks

The white mushroom is Hericium erinaceus (the Lion's Mane Mushroom), the brown ones are Pholiota nameko. Both of these are cultivated species in eastern Asia and amongst the most popular edible mushrooms there.

Please post a link to your blog. I'd love to see more of the willow structures.


I would love to look at your blog as your pictures are so gorgeous and intriguing, but I got a message that the blog is only open to invited readers. Is your blog now private?

Guys, this is proof:

I planted a bunch of corn and didn't water any of it. I planted one batch at the same time, and a month later another batch (you can see tiny plants).

You can clearly see four corn plants on the left from the first batch compared to the rest of the first batch.

All large corn plants in this pic were planted at the same time. The hugel corn matured literally more than a month before the regular corn and grew to be waaaaay bigger in height, diameter, leaf size and corn size.

Remember, all unwatered.

They're Beefheart tomatoes although in France we call them Cœur-de-bœuf (Heart of ox).

They grow very tall so take up little room on the potager and they taste really delicious.

Great photos David, I especially like this one :



(You may know this but I'll say it anyway for anyone who doesn't. To put a photo from Picasa into the forum right click on the photo with your mouse then click on "copy the address of the image" go back to the posting box in the forum, click on the Img tab at the top, then click ctrl/v to put the url into the space. When you submit your post the photo should appear.)

Irene what do you know about growing Tarbais beans? I have been
asked to grow some by a cousin in New Orleans. She loves them but
thinks the humidity down there is causing hers to drop their blossoms.

Alex,

"Irene what do you know about growing Tarbais beans?"

Sorry I missed this, I've just come back from a visit to the UK.

I've never grown Tarbais beans but from what I know, they are a bean created specifically for the Tarbes region in southern France - so it may indeed be a humidity problem.

Irene, my cousin had some Tarbais beans in a cassoulet at a restaurant in New York
and set out to grow them. She failed and now it is my turn and I don't like my chances.
They are extremely expensive due to them only coming from Tarbes I guess.

Some of the seeds she sent me were the few that she was able to grow and they are
20% larger than the seeds she grew them from and are more yellow in color. I am going to
have a go at it and see what I get.

Please post some more of your beautiful pictures.

David, the Mexican Sunflowers appear to be quite tall kind of like the ones I grew a couple of years ago. I estimate the top
of my gate at left in the picture to be 7 ft. high. The picture doesn't do justice to how tall this plant got. The blooms on this variety
were orange and yours appear to be yellow.

Yours look great. Mine is a perennial cousin - I think you have Tithonia rotundifolia. Mine are diversifolia.

Here are more shots and a little write-up I did a couple of days ago:

http://www.floridasurvivalgardening.com/2013/11/meet-amazing-giant-sunflower-that-fixes.html

I love both types... they bring in every pollinator on the block, plus they create lots and lots of biomass to feed the food forest.

David I don't have room for them in my current situation due to deer pressure
outside my fencing. I just need to bite the bullet and fence in more area. Although, I kind of
like the deer being around. I wonder if they like the perennial Mexican sunflowers
as well as they do the annual ones. Do you have this to deal with?

@Alex

The deer probably love them. We don't have a problem with them in my neighborhood, but I have a friend who's seen his fledgling food forest chewed to bits.

Fences are a good idea - I'd really miss the Tithonias if I had to live without them. They're my comfrey.

Recently moved to somewhere that has rocks so this herb spiral is the first thing i have made out of rock. The raised garden beds with the log sides have 2 ft of hugelculture underground under these beds with old hay, compost, dirt and leaves piled on top filling up the logs.
