Joy discovered Permaculture in 2015. Thanks, Paul! And suddenly the vast expanse of grass began to shrink. Her hubby is appreciative, as mowing is not fun for her guy.
Joy is designing her permaculture paradise from the edges. Fumbling and stumbling all the way. She successfully grows weeds and a few fruits and veggies in the humid Mid-south.

I give this book 9 out of 10 acorns

The author covers everything from how to grow from seed, grafting, pruning, choosing a nursery tree, how to harvest and use the fruit. He describes the attributes of selections of cultivated and named wild discovered varieties. To help you have the best possible success, included in the book are reputable sources for seeds as well as bare root trees. He even finds room in his book to address the importance of fungi and layers of beneficial companion plantings!

Did you know that while pawpaws require shade for the first two years, shade inhibits fruiting and the tree will produce best in full sun? The author includes methods for providing this necessary shade.

Among the are methods of pruning are practices to contain the tree for picking the fruit from ground level, or if you must contain them within an allotted space in your yard.

Now that your tree ts producing, now what? How about some original recipes? They are in the book! Yay! Happy growing!

If you want your charcoal to be activated, more steps need to be taken. I found a detailed article here.

I second the vet wrap. We've used it several times. I find that it works much better than that white first-aid tape. That stuff comes off so fast on me. And the vet wrap is much more comfortable than duct tape.

Were you looking in the mike oehler forum? I'm hoping you can help us find that broken link again, so we can fix it.

Ahem. The garden was flooded when the onions arrived. It remained soggy throughout winter, so I didn't plant them out until late spring. As would be expected, they were shriveled. But they lived! Yay!

The foliage did the expected dieback that is normal for us here in late summer. Both onions were weeded less than the ideal amount. The walking onions have come back. The foliage is about 12 inches tall. My garlic range from 4 to 6 inches tall right now.

If the potato onions have survived, shouldn't thay also be poking above ground?
