A Before and After at Parker St. in New Hampshire
I am completely delinquent at this point with the blog but I do have several exciting things to share in the next couple of weeks. I promise I’ll give an update on the car at some point, but right now I want to share about the permaculture design growing at my parent’s house in New Hampshire!
I’m here after two years of not working on the property to give the plants a nudge in the right direction as well as assess necessary additions and changes to the landscape design. It’s pretty cool to see some key parts of the design working. For instance, I planted a bunch of comfrey along the fence line of the chicken run so the chickens would eat the comfrey- a key part of the nutrient cycle. Now that both the chickens and comfrey are in place the chickens are eating the comfrey! So cool.
I’m also getting the chance to collect a bunch of herbs that I planted two years ago to start making the medicines I was so excited about at that time. That’s pretty special. Talk about manifesting. I’ll put out another blog post about a menstrual cramp’s support tincture that I’m in the process of making out of the plants that have been growing here. Imagine, medicine as a result of co-creating between the earth, the plants, and me the human. Wohhhaaahahaaaooaoaooaa.
Anyway, here are a few before and after photos. The before photos were all taken in April and May of 2016. The after photos are from August (this month!) 2018.
Things have really developed in two years! I can’t wait to see what happens in the coming two! Cheers to my mother and father who have done the hard work of maintaining the gardens for the last 2.5 years. They really are super stars!
