Wow gorgeous gardeners, SO MUCH TO READ about your shenanigans in each of your gardens!
Aren't they magical places to be?..... so much to discover about our plants, our soils, our worm friends lol, ourselves.
Hey J* maybe you can look up LETS in your area?
They're a Community based "trading" system and it's world wide.
It's not "commercial" but it's full of eco loving peeps - my kindred circle.
I started a Gardening group in our local LETS when I was at home with the kiddies.
Don't do anything in it anymore but I may again one day.
I organised weekly visits to ppls gardens and farms and acreages, even Community Gardens that joined LETS too, that wanted to share their gardens with us, it was such a beautiful time.
The owner could give a talk or a tour or just let us PICK STUFF if they wanted lol!
We picked Kiwi Fruit and in exchange we pruned their vines (I got 10 buckets of fruit mind you).
Same with cumquats, and all other citrus that was growing.
I can't tell you how much we gained from these visits.
Sure I'm "only" doing weeding but I still love it lol.
Did you all know that Darwin's Theory of "survival of the fittest" has been superseded by "survival of the most cooperative"?
You've all demonstrated how cooperation bears much fruit and not just in the ways of food, but in the ways of relationships, here and IRL.
Mark, I love crepe myrtles, I have too many of them! lol. I only planted 3.
They're the perfect passive solar option, amongst many other options I'm sure, they're so pretty!
What an awesome neighbour you are.
Hey Airies, you GO MAN!
Lilly, you're crowing glory MUST be the mangoes you've grown. Congrats dear lady.
Have a beautiful week everyone!
Yours in a greener world!
