Permaculture Worth Looking Into

Permaculture Worth Looking Into

There was a time when gardening was simple. All you had to do was plant like your neighboring farmers did, just on a smaller scale and with vegetables, and everything was going to be fine. This did ok, but with time the soil would get worn out, just like a farm, and after a generation or ten you would have to move on to fresher soil. Gardening and farming went quietly along like this for thousands of years and it wasn’t a big deal because there were few people and plenty of land. Well, it went mostly fine except for the occasional catastrophic failures of agriculture that bought down entire cultures. [...]

Do You Need a Garden Box?

The Broken Knife: A Gardening Parable

The Broken Knife: A Gardening Parable

I was looking at a failed piece of work while visiting a knife smith friend the other day. It snapped in two while he had been finishing a last bit of heating and tapping.

Have You Got Your Fix Yet?

Have You Got Your Fix Yet?

When it comes to nitrogen in your soil there are only a few ways to get it. Since nitrogen does not stay put as a mineral in the soil, a gardener has to figure out how to get it out of the air or be forced to go to the store to get a bag of it. The great thing about this is that it is easy and cheap to entice nitrogen from the air![...]

Why Every Homeowner Should Be Growing Ornamental Grass

Yeah, most homes in the northern U.S. have well-trimmed and tidy Kentucky bluegrass lawns, but Kentucky bluegrass does nothing for a self-sustaining landscape although it does have its place when used wisely and sparingly. But grass can and should have a fundamental part in a sustainable landscape – perennial clump grass that is![...]
