Episode 168: Beginning the Permaculture Approach to Homesteading

Today, I talk about how to begin implementing a permaculture approach to your homestead. This has been at the front of my mind this year as I started taking a PDC. I will share with you how I stumble across permaculture, what it is, and some steps we have taken here to begin adjusting our homestead to be more functional through permaculture design. Don’t get me wrong: I am a student of permaculture sharing my journey with you, not an expert.

Getting the Gardens Ready

  • Potatoes are looking awesome – need to fill in with wood chips or straw to encourage more potatoes
  • Time to look for Garlic scapes
  • Building Dutch Pots for last of the peppers and tomatoes
  • Filled in herbs, water plant seeds, and other warm weather plants this week
  • Onion starts going in the ground
  • Sweet potatoes going in when dutch pots are done so we do not lose all the real estate in the ap like we did last year
