Getting Cold

In the past 4 hours the temp has dropped 24 degrees.
It is now 39.9 degrees in the Lower Swale.

This morning there was a heavy frost in the Swales but the berms seemed
untouched.
I pulled some weeds and seeded the upper bank of B1. Using a pitchfork
in uncompacted soil makes it a breeze.
I also used the last of the rotting straw for covering the new seed.
New Survey on Journal soon. With pictures!

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.
