Today was a day of bush cutting and hauling dead fallen trees uncovered in our ground clearing. We have about five acres of mountainside and will have to develop a system of clearing in order to keep the potential of fire fuel low. For now this patch was still burned all the way to dirt and ash last December but in just 8 months since has grown a meter deep. Those blue green bushes that tower over M are less than a year of eucalyptus growth from the roots of burned trees. Summer skies still blaze with temps in the 30s (90s f). Unlike last summer there has been rain to keep the land from being too dry and help it replenish. I have seen areas near us not so lucky, with charcoal standing forests whose ground sits grey and lifeless. Our land may have gotten a burning, but it stayed very much alive and fertile. Now to plant some winter crops! #areturntoland #offgrid #permaculture #permies #naturalism #rewilding #offlife #mountaincabin #darkmountain #portugalliving #reforestation #homesteading #offgridliving #homestead #selfreliance #solar #outdoors #prepper #bushcraft #nature #mountainlife #outdoorlife #bushcrafting #tinyhome #bugoutbag #sustainableliving #woodsman #intothewild #ecoliving #wildcraft

Shades of green 💚✨ This mornings collection of tomatillos for making up some salsa verde, wild cucumber pods for drying and courgettes to make... well honestly, I still have courgettes piled high in the house, so I'm not too sure what to do with these, but I'll figure out something! I should really have listened to the advice @fromthegrange supplied in her posts and only planted a couple of zucchini plants, instead of the eight I planted... Maybe next year I'll learn my lesson 🤔 . . . . . . . . . . . . . #urbanpermaculture #permaculture #permaculturefarm #homegrown #growyourown #growyourownfood #growmedicine #nutritiousfood #moestuin #potager #potagergarden #notill #nodig #hugelkultur #homestead #slowliving #slowlife #slowlifestyle #seedsaver #farmlife #permies #permaculturefarming #ediblegarden #organicfarming #organicgardening #greenthumb #growfood #gardenchat #groworganic #gardentotable

Scoping out a spot for our first greenhouse. This terrace is below the studio ruin two terraces down from the Crow's Nest cabin. Its about 20ft wide and runs for 200ft or so along the ridge above the path in the middle of the land. I have an idea for a eucalyptus framed structure that goes along the edge of the upper terrace with a tent framework covered in clear plastic greenhouse tarp. Ten feet (3m) wide and twice or so long. Might try to get some seeds in for a winter crop. Planning an adjacent outdoor cabbage and bean patch. #areturntoland #offgrid #permaculture #permies #naturalism #rewilding #offlife #mountaincabin #darkmountain #portugalliving #reforestation #homesteading #offgridliving #homestead #selfreliance #solar #outdoors #prepper #bushcraft #nature #mountainlife #outdoorlife #bushcrafting #tinyhome #bugoutbag #sustainableliving #woodsman #intothewild #ecoliving #wildcraft

I show my #garden some #love once a week. #wormcastings are easy to use, I just walk through the garden and toss a handful of #wormpoop at each plant. Within days I have fresh #blooms and new #growth everywhere. Dont use too much, otherwise the #plants will grow out of control! Ask me how you can use worm castings to show your garden some love! #letitrot #wormqueen #thetrashywoman #permaculture #permies #staywoke #wormfarming #wormfarmer #vermicompost #vermiculture #blackgold #wormcomp #grow #growagarden #composting #growfoodnotlawns #veggiegarden #organic #organicgarden #sustainable #sustainableliving #regenerativeagriculture #ilovetheenvironment

It's getting cramped in this little #honda ! Luckily, I have a #ford pick up to start transitioning into using for #farmwork. I am looking for a mechanic in the #palmbeach area! I would prefer a #mobilemechanic for the convenience and reduced shop fees to get the #fordranger road ready, she needs some work on her gear shifter and a general look over and #tuneup. Please send me a reccomendation if you love your #mechanic ! In the meantime show Sasha, my little #hondacivic ! She is one of the most important #employees for #letitrot , without her there would be no #trashcollection ! But soon she won't have enough room to fit all my #compostbuckets ! #wormqueen #thetrashywoman #permaculture #permies #staywoke #urbanfarming #wormfarming #farmlife #entrepreneurs #sustainable #sustainableliving #composting #reducereuserecycle

After a morning of using a proper pickaxe to smash out solid stone in order to level the house's future kitchen floors I decided to relax and add some shelves to the orange tree in the Crow's Nest this afternoon. Hoping to get some cement soonish and start doing some castings. Starting with a countertop and sink in the cabin. Been daydreaming of working in concrete for awhile. Lots of ideas I want to try out. #areturntoland #offgrid #permaculture #permies #naturalism #rewilding #offlife #mountaincabin #darkmountain #portugalliving #reforestation #homesteading #offgridliving #homestead #selfreliance #solar #outdoors #prepper #bushcraft #nature #mountainlife #outdoorlife #bushcrafting #tinyhome #bugoutbag #sustainableliving #woodsman #intothewild #ecoliving #wildcraft

The decisions we make everyday are powerful. We can choose to minimize consumption, repurpose, work with nature, share and connect more with our community, buy local, grow some food, simplify our systems so that each element performs multiple functions as they do in natural ecosystems... We can support ethical businesses. We can regenerate soils. We can green deserts.. Use your skills and creativity! Connect with others who are empowered to create change! The people have the power! #youcandoit #dosomething #permaculture #permaculturedesign #sustainableliving #growfoodnotlawns #rethink #permies #garden #permaculturerevolution #earthactivism #timeforchange #growwhatyoueat #giveashitaboutnature #climateaction #beyondorganic #soilhealth #regenerate #growsomething #ecology #biodiversity #foodsovereignty #beyondsustainable #livenaturally #permaculturememes #bethechange #peoplepower #justdoit #dowhatyoucan

Industrial agriculture is bringing about the mass extinction of life on Earth. #IndustrialAgriculture is absolutely responsible for driving deforestation, absolutely responsible for pushing industrial monoculture, and that means it is responsible for species loss. You cannot make industrial agriculture workable unless you externalise the costs and exploit nature. Be more aware of your power as part of a society where we can change things. We have this power to change things in the future. What we have to do is make that change. It is time to switch to a world in which resources are shared and looked after. “The commons is only a tragedy because the commons in England were eliminated. Before they were eliminated there were people who could manage resources and nature in ways that were sustainable.” “The idea of a commons that is managed collectively and the way in which nature is managed well and sustainably, that’s a memory that needs to be recuperated.” Learn the benefits of #NoTill & permaculture design! Diversify!! Preserve soil health, water holding capacity, soil carbon, soil life, mycorrhizal networks, and more! #permaculture #permaculturememe #permaculturedesign #sustainablefarming #rethink #permies #permaculturerevolution #earthactivism #timeforchange #giveashitaboutnature #climateaction #beyondorganic #soilhealth #regenerate #ecology #beyondsustainable #permaculturememes #peoplepower #workwithnature #regeneration #polyculture #contraryfarmer #carbonfarming #soil #farming #drought #droughtfarmer #climatechange

The hard work is finally paying off! We may have had a fairly poor year for gardening, due to a late, late start to our summer and then once it began, very little rain, but I'm happy with this mornings harvest and the fact that the plants these came from are still producing! We received a lot of rain yesterday and it seems like things have doubled in size over night. To help the rest of the crop finish off growing, we decided to pick these babies. Included are spaghetti squash (which did very well this year), Hokkaido squash, cucumbers, acorn squash, courgettes and those enormous (they really are huge), banana shaped squash are Georgia candy roasters. The next things to begin harvesting will be corn and my favourite, pumpkins!!! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #urbanpermaculture #permaculture #permaculturefarm #homegrown #growyourown #growyourownfood #growmedicine #nutritiousfood #moestuin #potager #potagergarden #notill #nodig #hugelkultur #homestead #slowliving #slowlife #slowlifestyle #seedsaver #farmlife #permies #permaculturefarming #ediblegarden #eatclean #cleaneating #greenthumb #growfood #gardenchat #groworganic #gardentotable

#Papaya is a great crop, it will produce year round and one tree can produce up to 80 pounds of fruit! They are less fruitful as they age, but grow and produce quickly by seed! Their #fruit can be eaten #unripe when they are green and is used in #vegan dishes or can be #eaten #ripe and have a sweet taste, after turning orange! How do you use and eat papaya? #letitrot #wormqueen #thetrashywoman #permaculture #permies #staywoke #urbanfarming #wormcastings #growedibles #organicfarming #wormfarmer #blackgold #soflo #urbanfarmer #organic #growfoodnotlawns #tropicalplants #tropicalfruit #vegansofflorida #veganfood #sustainable #sustainableliving #composting

Little facebook reminder of where the passion for gardening started. Living in an inner city unit on a busy main road, didn't drive a car then so my driveway was littered in pots of herbs and plants. I still have a few plants from back then in their original pots 🤗 and am still learning, failing and succeeding in growing plants! . . #urbangarden #urbangarden #gardening101 #gardening_feature #sustainablegarden #ediblegarden #organicveggies #organicgardening #permaculture #permies #growfoodnotlawns #garden #growingfood #thehappygardeninglife #gardenactivist #sustainablegardening #growfood #veggiepatch #veggiegarden #epicgardening #growsomethinggreen #eatwhatyougrow #gardeningaustralia

Today is for rain, eating and community, but yesterday was for harvest, family and canning! Fall is crazy guys... I'm not sure why I think getting further and further down this growing/preserving food path while also becoming an educator is a good idea (who needs sleep in September?!), but maybe I'll be able to feed my future students?

We have finally begun work on the house itself. We had a local crew do the base foundation and tie it into an existing ruin back in June. The house sits 80m further down the mountain than the cabin. The lower ruin and extended area will be a kitchen and bathroom. The lower half of the kitchen's rear wall is exposed black schist from the mountain. Once the stones are basically level we will pour a concrete floor and some stepped levels. Under those stepped areas its the solid stone of the mountain. Then we have a bit of concrete wall work to seal up the lower level. After that we begin on the wood timber frame above the foundation. #offgrid #areturntoland #permies #schiststone #schist #mountaincabin #cabin # #naturalism #rewilding #darkmountain #sustainableliving

Guuuuuuuys! This was our supper last night (plus some chicken). A cheap, healthy, colourful and local meal. We're harvesting, storing and sharing with most of our spare time right now. It's been getting pretty cold at night! What do you do with your cabbage? That's one I'm still trying to figure out.
