What we think, we become. Buddha
Thinking plants and gardens and growing…I suppose I have become a person who is in love with the Earth!
Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumoured by many.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books.
Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.
Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.
But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it. ~Buddha
Permaculture wine…because, all the fruit is grown here at Bealtaine Smallholding using permaculture methods and every aspect of the wine making process is carried out in a sustainable way.
Even the demijohns have been sourced as recycled/upcycled.
I’m reading ‘Blackberry Wine,’ by Joanne Harris at present and one of the central characters, ‘Joe,’ is definitely a permie!
It’s a great read!
As for the Blackcurrants, I have taken to planting them along the ditches here and into the hedges…planting a slip at a time!
Trees are very precious to me.
I have lived here for 7 years and planted over 600 to date with plans for more!
Plant as though your life depends on it…because it does!
We could not exist as we do if there were no trees.
A mature leafy tree produces as much oxygen in a season as 10 people inhale in a year.
Forests act as giant filters that clean the air we breath.
Trees Shade and Cool
Shade resulting in cooling is what a tree is best known for.
Shade from trees reduces the need for air conditioning in summer.
