This is the place to come if you’re green thumbed and keen to learn about permaculture skills and principles. Those are things like home gardening, beekeeping, sustainable agriculture and system design, and natural building. Milkwood’s feed is full of images of the spoils of these production practices.
Current situation on our kitchen floor. . It's a bit like a colourful inbox, except if you ignore these messages for long they will transform from awesomeness into a big rotten mess. So each night we process. And then each day brings more pickings to preserve, press, ferment, dry. . And then repeat, each night, until the frost and the rains come creeping in - and the harvest is finally done. . My grandparents did this. My grandchildren will likely do this. This is Autumn, in a house where storing the season is part of the deal of living. #Melliodora
