Plant Community Observation & Maintenance Log

Community or Guild: Orchard
Date: 8/1/06 (From previous notes)
Time: 9 Am
Weather: 6 inches of rain last night.

Observations :
We had six inches of rain. The swales are full of water. S1 is spilling
over to S2 which is s ankle deep and the pond is as high as ever.
2 infiltrated quickly and S3 is draining across the driveway from the
center but holding back alot..
This is a good time to pull weeds, they just slide out without clumps.

Permaculture and Polyculture Consulting and Design
Getting to know your property, the plants you have and those you can grow, is a fulfilling endeavor. With most I am the steward of the land. I give them good soil biology and they do the rest. If I group them in cohesive plant communities, they respond with greater yields. If I encourage the micro-organisms (Fungus and bacteria) , the roots obsorb more nutrients making a pest and disease resistant plant. A stronger plant that gives us more organic food and takes less energy.
