Before and After Pics & Their Effects

“A picture is worth a thousand words …” said many wise men

With that in mind, I keep an album of photographs to remind and inspire me to keep going and growing when the plants are staying still with not a fruit in sight. Oh yes, gardeners’ patience are tested many a time but Food Forest zealots like me get it double the force.

That’s when the album is opened … (and now shared with fellow bloggers).

The long frosty winters of 2010 (on record as coldest) and 2011 wiped out everything green so we decided in 2012 to begin working with Mother Nature and doing it the Permaculture way.

That cocky apple tree and all that sod, sod, sod. See the power lines?

3 years and still learning. The front yard is kept kind of “normal” to prevent those stone-age thinking county officials from ringing the doorbell, but elsewhere I practice what I call ” Food Forest Yardening” ~ my hobby.
