Hi! I've been lurking on permies.com for about a year, consulting the forums for knowledge bombs on hot-button issues like 'to prune or not to prune' fruit trees (answer: no one really knows) and whether eastern red cedars can be compatible with apple trees (answer: yes, with caveats). My husband and I left Seattle back in 2017 and returned to the Midwest, where we could afford a house and 1/4-acre, which we're converting from lawn, ornamentals, and overgrown invasives to a productive food forest highly featuring native plants. We chronicle this process on a blog here: https://www.catintheflock.com/permaculture/ ; https://www.catintheflock.com/native-plants/ and, my favorite, https://www.catintheflock.com/mulch/. Just wanted to share in case anyone's interested (this is labor of love, so while we do have ads on our site, they haven't generated revenue, and we're mainly in this for the sharing and learning). We invite comments, constructive criticism, commiseration, company. Thanks for being a beacon in the smog, permies!
