Hello there!
I've long felt the 'call to cultivate'. I found Paul and his stuff in 2017, and have been steadily watching and learning since.
I went to part of the 2019 PEP Jamboree at Wheaton Labs! Simply put, it was awesome.
I feel pretty un-knowledgable about a lot (all?) of this stuff, but I'm really excited to learn, and learn, and learn.
That's part of why I am really into PEP; because I can learn, and also because PEP is awesome, too.
My big-wild-crazy-scary-to-say-out-loud dream is to build a town with no cars that can feed itself.
I'm a Pod People. Podcast Progress: 370/4NN

A misty morning.

I almost finished peeling a whole tree

I also love all the signage here at Wheaton Labs. It's such an efficient way to convey information to the swaths of people who come through.

All week there's been a huge box of mushrooms here at Wheaton Labs. They were starting to turn, and so I got permission to dry a couple pounds of them:
Yesterday Jaqui brought split pit peaches! That means today we canned peaches!

The recipe was simple:

- quartered, peeled peaches
- apple juice

That's it! I was surprised how easy it could be!
Fred let me know the willow feeder at the lab needed the fly trap cleaned out:
