Roble monumental de Jauntasarats, Basaburua.
Tiene cientos de años y aún le quedan muchos más. Por ello se ha cercado, para no invadirlo y respetarlo.
Una se siente más pequeña cuando te acercas, la vista se ve movida por tan hermoso ejemplar de Quercus Robur, y luego...tras respirar su presencia, el resto de sentidos también.
Hoy el olor a bosque húmedo, a musgo y raíces lo inunda todo.
When I lost my first compost thermometer, I actually freaked out a bit. How will I know if I'm in the right zone? I searched for that thing for weeks. No idea where it is but wouldn't surprise me if it's just sitting out in the open and I'm just overlooking it. Well, funny thing is as I obsessed over my compost piles this winter, I started getting more of a feel where things were in the cooking process. I would feel. Smell. Visuality inspect. It is very Jedi and the Force minus the midichlorians unless midichlorians are the beneficial microbes breaking down my compost. ⠀
But my wife got me a very, very nice @reotempinstruments thermometer (not an ad). And it's kind of a sidekick helping me tweak my senses to be a bit more accurate cause I have the dial right there. Right now we're in the 130's which has been hard for me to get to this winter with the freezing temps and so much rain and snow. Pretty cool. ⠀

Panar... Was? Panarchie. Hättet ihr gewusst, was das bedeutet? Nein? Unsere Master-Studis bis letzte Woche auch nicht. 😜🤓 Neben internationalen Weinen und strategischem Management standen ökologische und soziale Nachhaltigkeit auf dem Lehrplan und die Studis haben spannende Ergebnisse präsentiert und Fragen diskutiert. Permakulturen als nachhaltige Option für den Weinbau? Die Zukunft wirds zeigen. 🍇🐑🌱 Panar... what? Panarchy. Would you have known what that meant? No? Neither did our masters class until last week. 😜🤓 Besides international wines and strategic management, ecological and social sustainability were on the curriculum. The students presented exciting results and discussed interesting questions. Permaculture as a sustainable option for viticulture? The future will show. 🍇🐑🌱 #weincampus#neustadt#mbawine#sustainability#sales#wineworld#permaculture#viticulture#greencampus
Human beings with their tampering do something wrong, leave the damage unprepared, and when the adverse results accumulate, work with all their might to correct them. When the corrective accounts appear to be successful, they come to view these measure as splendid accomplishments. People do this over and over again. It is as if a fool were to stomp on and break the tiles of his roof. Then when it starts to rain and the ceiling begins to rot away, he hastily climbs up to mend the damage, rejoicing in the end that has accomplished a miraculous solution. - Masanobu Fukuoka
we were given the gift and opportunity to participate in weekly collections of veggie and fruit clippings from our local organic market. not having done this before, we really didn’t know what to expect aside from hoping to add more nitrogen (green matter) to our compost pile. much to our surprise, the (2) gigantic produce boxes were full of freshly discarded greens... and altho our compost certainly benefited from those clippings, so did my love and i along with a few others who we shared the gift with. from mustard greens to chard, spinach and cilantro galore... it was truly a treasure trove - both beautiful yet sad at the same time. the amount of food waste we generate in the united states alone is astonishing and needs be our responsibility as a society to help reduce. please consume and dispose of all things with thought and consideration. pause and think. our current and future generations depend on us. 🌹 🐝 ❤️ *
Compost Tea - The perfect brew for your garden!
It adds fertility to the soil and helps keep certain unwanted insects at bay. You can store it for 4-5 days in an airtight dark container..
So how do you make it? > Fill a jute sack or even a pillow cover with your compost and tie it up
> Fill a tub or bucket with water and immerse the compost bag in it. > Swirl it around to allow the water to soak the compost. > Leave it so for at least 2-3 days to let the nutrients flow into the water. > You’ll be able to tell it is ready when the water is the color of black tea.
> Fill a spray bottle or watering can with the compost tea. > Pour or spray the water on and around your potted or garden plants to give them a drink full of nutrients .
You can use the same bag of compost to make a couple of batches of compost tea.
Once used, spread the wet compost around the garden/plants.
Look after your plants and keep them healthy and happy :) Link in bio for the essential ingredient for compost tea!
We have one duck duck so far!! Lots of pipping coming from the other eggs still. I think they will be slowly hatching out all week. However, I am worried one already died inside it's egg 😭😭. Farming is exciting and very hard. There's so many variables against you. I often stop and remind myself I can only control so much. If only one hatches (I'm sure more will) but if only one hatches it will be a pet. We went into this wanting to raise meat birds. They're my babies now though!! So we'll see. #farmlife#permaculture#raiseyourownfood#ducklings
I'm excited to share episode 4 of The Eco-Interviews with you! 🎙️ In this episode, we speak to Chris Jones, a farmer in Cornwall, England. We discuss his journey from running his family's dairy farm in a conventional way, to transitioning to organic and now regenerative. Chris is also an advocate for reintroducing beavers to the UK, and has brought beavers to his property.
If you've never heard of regenerative agriculture, this is a great starting point. And Chris's passion about beavers would get anyone excited about preserving this keystone species.
Ep. 4 is now live on iTunes, Spotify, YouTube, and the full transcription and listening options are live on the website, link in bio↖️. Enjoy! 👨🌾🌳🐄
PLANNING YOUR PERMACULTURE PROJECT: Twenty four hours. That’s how much time any of us get allocated in a day. So it can be helpful to think about how we use this valuable time by breaking it down into four quadrants, and how various tasks can be fitted into these.
1) Some tasks are IMPORTANT and URGENT (crises, pressing problems, meeting deadlines, watering the seed trays on a hot day, feeding your hungry baby)
2) Some tasks are IMPORTANT buy not URGENT (strategic planning, building relationships, establishing routine maintenance systems, carrying out research, pruning the fruit trees, setting time aside for self-care, rest and recreation)
3) Some tasks are URGENT but NOT IMPORTANT (interruptions, some phone calls, some meetings, etc)
4) Some tasks are NOT URGENT and NOT IMPORTANT (gossiping about others, spending excess time on social media, ‘looking busy’, some meetings, procrastination)
Took a trip down to the local nature reserves compost heap (a wonderful asset to the community!) to gather as much woodchip as me and our bike trailer could take! Perfect and sweet smelling material to lay on the winter beds! #mulch#permaculture#urbanfarming

Hmmmm.... next year I’m growing purple tomatoes 😂 I’m a little over the yellow orange and red already... not to sound ungrateful... I am grateful for my food and I LOVE it but... who doesn’t love purple food? What are some good tasting purple varieties? (I don’t grow just for looks it needs to taste good too) 💚

Today’s pickings 💚 first corn patch is coming through and I’ve got three more rounds planted. I think I planted about 40 corn. How do you like to store your corn?

✨ Hügelkultur is a horticultural technique where a mound constructed from decaying wood debris and other compostable biomass plant materials is later planted as a raised bed. ~ We built a Hügel today around the stumps of old trees at the bottom of a slight hill. This centuries-old Eastern European technique is a great way to utilize wood and other organic materials. The rotting wood slowly releases nutrients and retains moisture and the structure can serve as a raised garden bed for up to twenty years. We layered; logs, smaller branches, straw, leaves, mulch, soil and compost. In spring, we’ll sow a combination of beans and flowers on the mound as the first of many crops. @kids.seed.co ✨ #hugelkultur#familygarden#permaculture#notillgardening#sundayfunday#kidseedco

Strawberries are finally making it inside between me snacking on them in the garden and pig claiming her share it’s the first time I’ve got a little bowl for the fridge 😂 I should really net off the other berry bed so she can’t eat them all!
