Stalks fall down

July came and went, so did August and September. I picked tomatoes, beans, cukes, squash. The raccoons feasted on my heirloom blue corn. They were oblivious to the prayer flag deer fencing 8 feet in the air! Experiment with permaculture garden still a work in progress. I'm trying hard to not succumb to my instinct to turn the soil over this fall, but to let the stalks fall down and layer the earth for a winter blanket. Stalling on cutting trees too. Know it would help sunlight - but cut down trees? I think instead I should move the garden.

  1. Permaculture in the design is actually a copy of human settlements and perennial relationship found in the natural ecology of agricultural systems.
