Wow, I just watched this and think that I'd love to live in one of Elora's homes in Bali surrounded by a forest garden.  Just 10 minutes long, it will make you want to do more with the natural materials where you live!  Gives me hope for the future.

I wonder if Earth makes fun of the Moon for having no life.

I was once bitten by a rabid female deer.

Now, every time there's a full moon, I turn into a weredoe.

Moon joke time...

Did you hear about the bones they found on the moon?
It seems like the cow did not make it.

What holds the moon up?

How do you know when the moon is going broke?
When it's down to its last quarter.

I can't wait to grow these this year Ron.  I read about them in the book "The Whole Okra" and ordered them after seeing your post here.  They sound great and I really appreciate the way you packed them up and included bonus seed gifts.  Hopefully some of the plants will do well up here in Maine!  (fingers crossed)  Thank you!!!

Ed Waters wrote:Greg, was wondering if you ever offer tours of your Forest Garden.


Not formal tours as I don't yet think of it as tour worthy, but sometimes folks drop by for other reasons and then I take them for a walk/talk if they are interested.  It seems to usually happen after biochar hands on meetup sessions.  I have a few scheduled this year, but so far not at my home.  If you're interested and are down in York county sometime in the spring through fall and we can make it work then you're invited!

This year I'm hoping to have some success with okra.  I've never planted it before and am a bit concerned about my Maine summer and if it will do ok up here.  Can anyone recommend good varieties for the north?

At least it was directed at my dumb self.
Sorry mods. I will edit if you want me to.

No worries Kai, I accidentally do it now and again (and have that same slaps self on the forehead feeling).  No crime no fowl!!!
