Colors Changing, Leaf Still Working


The tree closest is on the south side and already bare. It was changing colors weeks ago and is exposed to the full sun and wind. The tree away from me is protected and shadowed. Each year the front tree has two sides, deep red and green, it is the first tree to change and a few weeks ago was doing it yearly bipolar display. To the right is a garage that keeps a lot of heat on the tree's one side. The left and south side changes first and the right garage side is last.

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.
