Winter being here and the days becoming unnoticably longer, we’re planning bigly for spring. One of my most anticipated plantings will be the blackberry bushes that arrived in the mail today!
I noticed yesterday that Wren from @mountainjewel had tried to email me a while back and ask what variety I preferred. I haven’t checked my email in about two months, and am lucky she contacted me on discord. Melissa (my wife) specified the sweeter variety, Triple Crown. Wren also graciously included a fifth plant, a Chester variety to add a bit of biodiversity that all permies love.
Five blackberry bushes! I had planned on four, and decided on locations for two. Guess I need to make up my mind, huh?
The contents also included some sunchokes. Four tubers of two varieties from their own garden that they said they’d send after reading my Permaculture Playing Cards post on sunchokes a few weeks back. The varieties are Pink Crispy and Lola sunchokes, and we’re very excited to put them in the soil. Melissa for the pretty flowers, and me for the food!
Woo, what abundant blessings from their permaculture homestead to ours. And all for just a 25 or so SBD.
I have said it before, and I suppose I’ll say it again: ordering on Homesteaders Co-op is a breeze. And now, @sagescrub has added USD compatibility with PayPal for those vendors who choose to also accept fiat currency.
I couldn’t be happier with my second order from @mountainjewel with the Co-op and I hope others are able to order soon and support this movement as well.
Where the heck is a soapmaker?
I’ll be back soon with a big idea. Co-op community involvement is about to go through the roof, y’all be sure to follow and stick around 😉
