Recycling in the permaculture gardensRecycling waste cardboard in the permaculture gardens of Bealtaine Cottage…part of the work programme for today as I continue to make new beds that will be planted out in the Spring.

cardboard in the permaculture gardenIt is early morning here in the west of Ireland and the sun is playing hide and seek…a beautiful, warm autumnal morning.

apple harvest in permacultureThe apple harvest is bountiful…nine years of apples and no chemicals, sprays or other tampering with Nature!

Black tomatoes from New YorkTomatoes are falling out of Potager beds…these are the seeds that Tara Angell sent me from New York…Black Tomatoes.

Potage beds in permacultureThis is the potager bed I made with students in a workshop this summer. There is no soil in it, just home made compost and shredding mulch.

permaculture raised bedsIn fact, all the seeds sent to me this year and last are growing magnificently here in the west of Ireland, in these north facing gardens of poor, thin soil!

cotoneaster berries for the birds in permaculture orchardAs I walked through the gardens I noticed the abundance of berries for the birds this winter…a sign of cold days ahead!

This huge shrub almost dominates the apple trees in the orchard…keeping the wild birds fed and happy!
