  • Trench Composting
    on Mar 21, 2015 in Beginner Gardens Garden Permaculture
    With the encouragement of commenters, I decided to go ahead and use the trench composting method for the latest delivery of restaurant compost. Trench composting is a way to compost in which the compost is buried directly into the garden beds. First,...
  • Restaurant Compost Update
    on Mar 15, 2015 in Garden Green Up
    As I wrote about before in this post, I’m composting the kitchen scraps of a restaurant in town. Every Friday I get a wheelbarrow full of pineapple skins, shiitake mushroom stems, spoiled avocados, tomato trimmings, corn shucks and cobs, kale s...

    The more I guild, the more lonely the unguilded trees seem to me. In particular, my Asian pear was looking very bare. Selecting plants for a guild can be pretty simple or pretty involved, whichever way you lean. I can go either way depending on what...
  • Rooting Strawberry Runners in In-Ground Cells
    on Apr 21, 2014 in Beginner Gardens Garden
      The Sweet Charlie strawberries I planted in October have grown steadily since I put them in the ground. The started blooming several weeks ago. Now they have nice, big, green berries. Sweet Charlies are supposed to be especially sweet, so swee...
