Paul Wheaton and Kelda Miller continue reviewing Sepp Holzer‘s Permaculture Chapter 2. They talk about creatively building markets, rather than doing what everybody else is. They also talk about turning problems into solutions. They talk about soil fertility and the polyculture approach in which nature lets you know what does well where. They talk about soil freezing, and how Sepp is proud when the soil biology is still active in the wintertime. Sepp lists good green manure crops. They talk about the concept of putting things to bed in winter. They talk about hemp and stinging nettles, and stabilizing slopes with deep rooted plants. They discuss terracing, and the pros and cons of farming in valleys with their floods. Kelda talks about trying to sell locally. Paul wants her to label her produce as petroleum free and polyculture 3. They talk about jerusalem artichokes as fodder.
