i know i’m really late on this one, but thought i’d contribute a belated post for may’s bloom day (the 15th of the month). at the time, there weren’t many inspiring things blooming in our garden, but there were lots of interesting things going on at dl farm, in dimebox:
our new friends, kayron and judy, are working toward incorporating elements of permaculture into their farm’s landscape. in particular, they are trying to capture as much rainwater that falls on site as possible, using a subtle system of swales and catchment tanks to direct the water back into the soil profile for plant uptake and ultimately, groundwater recharge.
as water resources get ever more precious, it will be imperative to incorporate water conservation practices such as these into our landscapes, no matter how big or small. thanks to kayron and judy for their stewardship.
happy (belated) bloom day…
