It's spring in the northern hemisphere! The planting season is starting for many of us. What have you put in the ground? How is it going?

Fall is starting in the southern hemisphere! Do we have anyone harvesting anything?

Yeah, I'm planning to keep the veggie raised beds around for sure. They're just on the mental backburner at the moment - I think it's largely because I love perennials and most veggies are (at least when they live in my climate) annuals. Boo.

Lol, true! I have a compose pile away from the rest of my plants that I don't need anymore since going (mostly) native, and I've been throwing random veggie seeds in it. I'm wondering if you let veggies do their own thing for years, and way overseed so they just outcompete weeds the first year--will they self seed the next year? I imagine one will reign supreme--probably the pumpkins, and I'll just have an eternal patch of whatever grows there.

I think that may be the idea with permaculture food forests just an understory of veggies? I'm not really sure, I'm with you--starting to find natives to eat, but I find it interesting all the same!
