Permaculture in a small space. Making the most of it.

Neat photography, but I think dave's spiral is more aesthetically pleasing.

Wow, what a video. And they did all that on such a small piece of ground. May have to rethink my back yard project. Landscaper comes today to discuss the plans. And I am still not sure of how I want to do it. Maybe I am too timid in my ideas.

I have about 3x that much space - front, side and back yards; so I have no excuse.

I think now the sun moves through the day throws me. In my mind's eye I keep seeing all the times that there is no direct sun and a fair amount of shade caused by fences and the house. And yet even the one area that doesn't see direct sun til way late in the afternoon is really hot when it finally gets it. Rhubarb and Bleeding Heart do really well there. I am having that bed expanded to leave only a narrow path between it and the bed on the fence about 5' away. I figure squash and zuchinni could grow there. I need some way to hold them up from the ground though because the ground is usually damp and I am plagued with some slugs - not as bad as in other places. I also have bush beans whose leaves seem awfully sensitive to our sun. They might do well there also. Also trying to figure out raised beds; not like 2' in the air, but just built up a little to get the ground warmer sooner.
