Sorry we have not posted a ‘permaculture update’ in ages. We’ve been busy with our great interns plus this is the busiest time of year for fruit and vegetable production.
As always, our summer crops focus on tomatoes and squash/pumpkin.
Lots of Black Boy peaches and Monty’s Surprise apples.
The yakon we planted is going well.
The first Jerusalem Artichoke are flowering.
After pruning, the avocados are showing new growth.
We’ve got trays and trays of tagasaste going.
On the animal front, the flock of muscovies has grown dramatically with over one hundred ducklings hatched.
We have a Billy now so we hope to have kids in five to six months time.
And appears we may have piglets any day.

Amazing harvests you have there! Have your yields increased each year with permaculture?
Having only planted perennials when we arrived three years ago, definitely yes. More fruit each year as the trees mature. Additionally we have expanded our annual gardens each year.
Wow great going Nelson, Dani, children and interns, such great harvests!
