which goes with this:
so the weeds is my FRIENDS! kinda suspected that. unfortunately, the only chicken-poop i got around here are the white folks next door.
still aint sure if it's Canada Thistle or not... but pluckin they heads off makes the rhizomes go plum crazy. wots disturbing is the shoots seem to be nestling up to the turnip and beet shoots. maybe they just helpin each other out. wouldn't surprise me none.

CURRENT WORLD SITUATION
I was going to say something about the Fairy and Human Relations Congress ad on his site, but nah,,,I won't.
Then again...where the hell have I been? Fairy and Human relations? Get out! As Waldo would say, wotdafook is that?
I think it's something I might like to see though. Do the women get naked?
Sorry Hannah. I'll behave.
i guess i was hoping you wouldn't notice! i know michael from years ago in the northwest, don't know about the fairy congress..... i always wanted to go to the barter fair, though.
and the permaculture related things are probably all good.
but the Fairy and Human Relations Congress, well, let's just say i doubt that would be held here in kansas!
anyone ever heard of this?
from the page: For the last few weeks, lacto-fermented salsa has been a staple in my kitchen. Added to scrambled eggs, used as a topping for baked wild fish, or along side a fresh garden salad, salsa has so many uses beyond just being a delivery system for chips. I try to have a homemade fermented food in my fridge at all times. The product depends on what is fresh and in season here in Maine. At any given time, I may have 3-5 different ferments going and always anticipate adding them to my meals. Currently, Maine is in between seasons, so the availability of fresh produce is less than excellent. Thankfully there is Olivia’s Garden. A hydroponic farm located in New Gloucester Maine, which provided us with cucumber, tomatoes, and beautiful salad greens in the middle of the winter. So these may not be the best tomatoes I have ever had, but by fermenting them, we are able to build flavor and produce more nutrition. It’s a win win situation!
first paragraph: I wrote Independence Days: A Guide to Sustainable Food Preservation and Storage because when it came time for me to take the next steps in eating locally and homegrown – to holding some of summer’s bounty for the long winter, there wasn’t any book that really covered what all I needed to know. After writing A Nation of Farmers about the “Why” of growing your own and eating locally, I ran into hundreds of people who had the same problem. They wanted to keep eating the same great food after the CSA boxes stopped coming or the farmer’s market closed down, but they didn’t know how.
Mexico Eco-Punks for Permaculture
video that i couldn't embed here try as i might.
the Canadian Thistle (if that's what it is) seems to be on some kind of mission. i had a dream that they were scouts preparing the way for the hardwood forests that used to be here. to the east is the great Black Swamp... which never really went away... and i had some kind of idea for that- shit where is it?
bicycles is da bomb. it takes a while to get used to much lower speed... but if you compare it to walking, the speed is there. i can pedal faster than i can run with almost zero effort. still gotta deal with the 2-wheel falling-down thing... not that eyes afraid of spills- i've had plenty- but i don't bounce and roll as good as i used to... and with my daily dose of rat-poison, bleeding could be a real bummer. still, when you get used to being around the noisy/ smelly/ dangerous whizzing tonandahalf hamster cages drivin by fat neanderthals, it's kinda cool.
bikes and trains (like they do in Germany) would really be neat if we didn't have about 100 million stoopidz holding us back.
Just got the veggies planted - only a week or so late for the season here. The planting area is crammed full with 13 tomatoes, 1 tomatillo, 6 eggplants, 5 lemon cucumber and 2 yellow squash. Need to expand. Have built a retaining wall from branches/other plant matter and will fill with dirt so we will have about double the space next year.
It has been a wet, cool spring and our landscaping is quite lovely. When we got back from Italy the weeds were whelming. Would really like to see our trees grow but the job continues to be stupid- so I continue to put out applications.
