Paul Wheaton and Kelda Miller continue reviewing Sepp Holzer‘s Permaculture Chapter 2. They discuss the section on Ways to Regulate Problem Plants. Paul talks about his master gardener teacher, Helen Atthowe. Sepp writes about the bark beetle, and Paul talks about the need to change one’s mindset. Paul prefers the land to be messy and textured, like nature would be. Without habitat, there are no natural defenses against pests. Paul says, “Down with tidy!” Sepp uses his pigs’ help and sows peas, beans, or sweet corn in between problem plants. Once pigs have left an area, it is a great time to plant there. Paul doesn’t use cardboard in anything horticultural. Sepp writes about the importance of hardy seeds that can be saved. They discuss wheat, and nutritional quality. Paul shares about Sepp’s perennial Russian corn. They talk about feeding animals off the land in the winter. Sepp writes about planting catch crops with his cereals.
