Like most of the world, we've been experiencing atypical weather. Our spring rains came far later than normal, and now summer storms roll in from the Atlantic far earlier than normal.
The plants here are mostly doing fine, but they're clearly eager for sunshine, so they can make some use of all this water around.
Here's where breakfast came from today, a small salad of baby kale and collards topped with raspberries. It isn't pretty, but it's a start, and productive.
The pallet crates are awesome. Vertical space is often overlooked as area for growing.
We saved quite a bit of wood from the deconstruction at the Ecostead, and vertical gardening as a #LivingWall of edibles / food is one of the later projects we've planned.
The new roof line is going to affect some areas of sunlight, and raising the beds will help.
It is time to stop Ecological and economic genocide upon people of color. Tortoise Mountain and Turtle Island natives are the original Ecosteaders. Long before European and other settlers with delusions about government-subsidized development in "blocks" of colonizer cash infrastructure, Native Land Before Invasion was organic. And there never were opportunities or roles for any white dudes as a "Chief" Executive Officer. Get out of here and fix the problems plaguing Europe before trying to kill the indigenoUS Earth.
