The backyard food forest has been taking off the last month or so. The seeds planted in late June have been growing rapidly, which is exciting. I have some great examples of simple permaculture methods on display out back. The runner beans are climbing through the fruit tree branches for support, while they give back to the trees by fixing the nitrogen in the soil. The squash is spreading a nice, low canopy over the ground, keeping the soil moist for both the beans and fruit trees.
If you have any great recipes of your own, share them or just links to them in the comments section. I would love to discover some new recipes for my never-ending zucchini supply, the stock piles of swiss chard, and the steady supply of eggs. Plans are already in the works to can cucumbers and tomatoes, so I should be fine in that department.
