So today’s post is on keeping those most important to you on your permaculture journey happy. Yes I mean the wife oh and the honey bees as well.
When I started out looking at permaculture garden for our house I was just a tad … gung ho in regards to if you can’t eat it we won’t have it! Now this won me few friends on the home front and even fewer with the bees but hey I can be a man kind of man (or at least pretend to be) and it was my way or the highway… dam it!!
Now that I have been looking a bit more at the process and have calmed down a bit I am just a little bit more understanding of a few things. One of which is the need for flowers to be in my garden. It is critical with the bees and beneficial insects and keeps the garden healthy and my wife is a lot more interested in this whole food forest thing if it is nice to look at. I must admit that after seeing the kitchen garden at Peppers place on the weekend and hearing the plans A. has for her kitchen the balance of food and flowers will make a nice escape just outside our back door. Somewhere to retreat from the city. Somewhere even I will like to sit and look at the flowers..
OH and I get to do a whole bunch more projects to hide the horror of my chook shed, garden and hot house from the kitchen garden and I do SO love my projects.
