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.
Officially Zone 7b, according to personal obsevations I live in 7a, SW Tennessee

Yeah. In past years they were good to me. When I visited last week, so much stuff is out of stock. I figure they're likely going out of business. I did not order from them this year.

I haven't watched the videos. For anything soil related, Redhawk's soil serries, here, is a good read.

I have used straw without damaging the plants, it just takes a bit more time than I wanted it to. Redhawk describes waiting to use it until it has a change in color. Fresh, it's that nice golden color, when it get kinda brownish, the danger to plants has passed. Here is that discussion.

I've been seeing lids and jars in stock at the stores for the last month or so... Check your supplies and purchase before the rush!

Greg, do you have several patches? Under what conditions do they grow best for you?
Thank you Daniel. This was an informative talk. There will be a replay of it here.

Here is where to learn about Thomas' book Botany in a Day.

I like the half aprons. I want to make something similar to this one on Esty.

Y'all should have seen the ads on Hunny's Facebook when I was researching Russian honeybees, and where to buy queens. 😁

When I measure for my waistline I add 2 inches for ease. This is not binding to me, but it is... not snug, but ummmmm, comfortable. Two inches ease for my hips, a skirt comfortably skims them. My opinion is not from experience with drafting the bustline, but I think around the bustline, I would want a total of 4 inches of ease. this would allow for deep breaths, and flexing of shoulders, pulling of the garment as you work without tearing, etc.
