Self Deficiency

An amateurish attempt at a good life.

I like the idea of permaculture. It’s a concept I’m hoping to integrate into our garden’s master plan when we get round to putting it together. As a first step I decided to experiment with the permaculture classic - a herb spiral.
This is only a prototype and was easy enough to construct. I’d hope that ‘mark ii’ will be a much larger and more permanent structure. My schoolboy error was to build it under the branches of a sycamore tree. During it’s first month it did quite well but when the tree’s branches filled with leaves it was soon cast into permanent shade. 
It’s just as well I made a prototype really.
