After spending time with Dominick Giordano, Charleston Permaculture Guild's co-leader (with Chris Carnevale) and the perennial food forest ninja from Urban PolyCultures, I'm ready to rework our homestead.
Things that make me go Hmm...
- It's possible to improve soil without the back pain of adding compost.
- Planting perennial herbs around fruit trees have the power to drop kick garden pests.
- It doesn't take long to figure out that annual vegetable gardens are the high maintenance step sister of the incredible edible fruit orchard.
Problem is the food is so good that hubby and I will be regulars as early as tomorrow evening. After biting my fingers polishing off a chorizo, chimichurri and manchego cheese today, we're really looking forward to tomorrow...Can you say Vietnamese Pho?
