This thread is for anyone interested in teaching what they know for those who what to learn from those who know more that we do. I have all the "usual" raised bed kitchen annual garden, berries and a few fruit trees, keep a worm farn and compost pile but what I really want to do is develop my 18f ft by 40 ft side yard using permaculture principles. Anyone here on BYC interested in teaching me or learning with me? After reading the samples of at least 30 books, most that I found interesting but pretty much useless found an ebook that is around 3,000 pages (not a typo!) with tons of links. It's called iPREMIE by Bob Waldrop. Though many of the book I checked out were expensive this one was only $1.99. It will take me weeks to get through it but so far I really recommend it to anyone interested in permiculture. What are your December Gardening chores? What did you do today? what do you have planned this week? Be sure to tell us what climate zone you live in. I live in zone 7.5. December is the time to plant bare root trees and to prune woody perennials. Today I got my (no till) raised beds ready to plant a cover crop and began pulling my strawberry runners to sell on Craigslist.
