Hi,

I've been reading this forum periodically for some time (mostly because google searches bring me here). I am in the process of starting a blog at https://groundandfury.com that is about gardening, farming, homesteading, and other related issues in the Palouse region. I figured I should finally start posting here and reading more regularly to get more ideas about material and meet people who can give advanced feedback. My blog is still getting up and going and not all of the key material is yet available. Further, the camera on my phone is broken so any pictures not taken by my wife are garbage haha, so forgive bad pictures.

Some of my particular interest are in classic gardening and homesteading texts, no-till gardening, hugelkultur, beekeeping, heirloom bulbs, and sustainable agriculture generally.

I look forward to using this forum and getting to know other people interested in sustainable agriculture!

With my own blog, I simply write about what I'm doing, or about my thoughts on some subject. I write what I know, pure and simple.

I'm curious......what's behind the name "groundandfury"?   Sounds like there's some sort of curious story there.

I'm a hhhhuuuugggeeee fan of William Faulkner. I had so many complex ideas about what to write about I had no idea what a name for all of them could be, and then when I publicly asked for suggestions my best friend had the name right away. I also sometimes have a temper at the ground.


A big thing I failed to say, is that the "intermountain region" (between the Cascades and Rocky mountains) is a REALLY unique gardening area and you can't find shit for advice that applies to here, so a big part of what I'm going for is the "niche" of a lack of gardening advice for this exact reason with a different climate than everywhere else.

(though Washington State University does some great research, including chicken tractor research Paul Wheaton included in his main chicken keeping article...and WSU is but 14 miles from here.)
 
You don't know me, but I've been looking all over the world for. Thanks to the help from this tiny ad:
