Talk about a permaculture paradise! I've got comfrey, Mullen, luffas, birdhouse gourds, strawberries, cucamelons, marigolds, and sunflowers all in this little section of the garden! A lot of people don't realize that you can easily have a permaculture garden and have it look amazing at the same time lol. I've seen quite a few that just weren't planned correctly in the beginning and they grow into a giant mess (in my opinion...). The most important part in starting a garden is the planning stage, and thats whether its a permaculture garden (or even a food forest for that matter) or a traditional garden with rows. Without good plans a huge mess will typically occur and things won't always do all that well. For the folks that live for a permaculture garden or food forest, don't get me wrong I LOVE permaculture!! I really do! If I owned a good size chunk of my own land I'd without a doubt have the majority of it planted in a dense fully productive permaculture food forest paradise! Everything down the "weeds" will be a benefital part of the system. Now if I owned my own land and had all of that going on, I still would make sure to have my traditional BTE style garden somewhere on it, with lots of nice straight rows, and without a weed in sight lol. I really can't wait till the day I have my own place! I hope I'm still doing this kind of thing with IG, FB, or YouTube when I get it, because I really think you all will love what I'd do to it and how I'd go about doing it all!! I mean it's my ultimate dream, so just imagine the planning I've already put into that project I've always wanted to start!!! It's going to be incredible!! I'm so looking forward to it, even if it might be years away from where I am right now!! I'll get there eventually I'm sure!!
