    The permaculture bug has bit me hard in the last few months. I think it's all very exciting and it's great to be doing something positive and hopeful for once. We've had a spate of warm weather here in the Denver areas his week, and I'll be digging little swales, which are water-soaking contour ditches, in the thawed ground today and looking at how to channel water from our drainspouts so that it doesn't just run off down the driveway.

    I also bought a pile of wildflower and other flower seeds yesterday, hoping that makes the garden presentable enough that neighbors won't think it's going too crazy (and also for the beauty and insect benefit).

    This will be my helpful pioneer plants and mulch-growing year, with veggies coming after.

    My latest permaculture epiphany- Veggies you grow yourself in a sustainable way are better nutritionally than something grown in a monoculture, even if it's organic.

    I look forward to the rest of the series, thanks tons.
