Agroforestry has become my greatest passion on our permaculture homestead. It is such an amazing and dynamic system, and in my opinion, is one of the technologies that can help save the planet. Perennial (AKA - Permanent) tree and plant systems offer so much stability to our natural landscapes. In permaculture, one of our biggest goals is to mimic nature. Agroforestry, sometimes called food-...

Foot rot is very common around here because the land is so wet. Untreated it is a miserable condition and can quickly affect the health and happiness of the whole sheep. Apparently the bacteria only survives a few weeks on its own, but it’s hard to get rid of it when your sheep have to come into the same place every day to get milked. For us it’s not too big a problem, because we see the sheep...

Kidney beans grow surprisingly well in a polytunnel, even here in soggy Ireland. And they’re worth it too – for the wonderful colour and so much flavour. Of course you can just soak them and boil them like any dried pulse, but this is the way Sandra prepares refried beans – and although it seems a lot of work and time, the taste really is excellent.

Sugar beet needs cool damp conditions -- which is just what we have! It grows well and it's a good feed crop -- so why not grow some too? We use a root chopper and feed it to sheep, horses and pigs. We eat the tops too. It's a lot like turnips and fodder beet and swedes and manglewurzles -- but it has a higher sugar content. That's why it's normally grown for sugar and alcohol production.

There is no greater feeling than producing the majority of what we need on on own land. We started this journey 9 years ago in Costa Rica and are so amazed with how far we have come. Feeding ourselves from our land always seemed like a daunting task, but feeding all of our animals too...Impossible. So we thought. I am happy to say, after years of hard work and experimentation, we are finally...

I made this with salvaged angle iron and 1 1/2" tubing, 2-golf cart wheels, 8- roller blade wheels, 3-26 " bicycle rims, a motor and pulley from an old piston water pump, and bits and pieces of steel. I had hoped to be able to build it for free, but in the end I had to buy the 1/2 inch wire mesh, pop rivets and washers to attach the screen to the rims, two 5/8" pillow blocks and a 76" v-belt. I...

I decided to harvest the remaining 7 containers of potatoes this evening. These are the Sarpo Miras grown in smaller 30 litre pots. The result was the biggest crop I've ever had of about 75 pounds from the 7 pots with some of the potatoes being enormous. The first one being almost 13.5 pounds from just a single pot. So I will continue to grow my spuds this way and grow more of this variety.
