    Gardening or Permaculture, Anyone?

    I have been doing it for quite some time. I remember being a young boy and helping my mother plant and weed a garden in my old home town.

    Today in our yard we have a nice garden and some berry bushes (raspberries and strawberries) along with a garden where we grow potatos, carrots, radishes and lettuce. We've planted quite a few bushes and trees in our yard as well. Sometime I'll take the time to snap a few pictures, I don't want to sound arrogant but we have a very nice yard thanks to me and my mothers green thumbs

    So, do you Garden? If so, what do you grow? Berries? Veggies? Do you plant trees? I do a bit of tree planting every summer with members of my country's Green party.

    I love gardening! Except when my mother makes me plant impatiens. I really like planting vegetables. And plants.

    It's really fun! But I don't have my own garden and probably won't for the next 4 years. ,_, But I'm taking some potted plants with me.

    I plant seeds everywhere. I think it's fun. You make a little mudball with seeds and some plantfood in it and then you throw them around.

    I've been wanting to plant an Oak tree for some time but with our climate I doubt it would grow at all or survive the winters

    Admit it, you're just lazy and throwing mud balls full of seeds and plant food is easier for you :p



    So no one else here gardens... at all? Even the non heathens? :

    Maybe they're just not interested...

    And it's not lazy! It takes a while to make them!

    I unfortunately don't have a garden, living in the grey nightmare of downtown Athens.

    But oddly enough it is part of my job since I chose to write a gardening column...and I enjoy so much learning about it...

    Of course i enjoy gardening! I grew up with it. My Grandfather did all the Gardening Issues in the Cities and Villages around after 2nd World War and when i was 6 he teached me everything; how to plant, where to plant, what to plant, what to kill, what and how much to water this and this plant, what animals should be kept of off them etc etc etc.

    I'm glad that he teached me alot about it - he teached me every siungle thing about nature - even curious stuff like immitating birds. When i went with him to the forest to watch wildlife and we heard a bird singing he always asked me "What bird was it? Tell me." if i didn't know he whistled the song of the bird and told me what bird it is - same goes for other animals, their footprints, behaviour etc.

    My Family is and was always very trad. paganistic.

    I garden. Property is cheap here as compared with European standards so we have two residences, one in the high mountains (6500 ft. elevation) and one lower in the foothills of the mountains (2700 ft.). These are both weather extremes for gardening. The high residence has cool summers and cool winters. Concord grapes barely grow, blackberries, rasberries, apples, pears grow. The low residence is very hot in the summer. It is so hot that nothing grows without constant watering. A cherry tree did not do so well there. European grapes grow there. We are hoping our fig tree (a desert fig) will do well there.

    My Grandma always had a large garden when I was small but the concords were my grandpa's domain. She still has the land although the 30 acres have gone fallow. My mom always had something growing even though she lives in a city. She is a country girl at heart and I learned my love of the land from her.

    Due to living in an apartment I have not been able to plant much other than irises and lillies but I had several pots of herbs and tomatoes that I gave away when I moved last month.

    I am going to put some bulbs in soon for next spring and see how much I can grow next year. I want more than just tomatoes, peppers, basil, thyme, oregeno
    , cilantro, and dill.

    Hey all, I grow a few things here and there. I currently live on an organic farm right now in western wisconsin. I am very interested in sustainable lifestyles and interested in green building.
    I was thinking about starting a Heritage garden to go along with the diet.....anyone have any suggestions for what veggies to grow for a nordic garden???

    The house we live in now is on a gravel pit. All I could grow now is a rock garden. I tried planting a tree a few years ago and my dog ate it. I am an expert at growing weeds though.
