|Total||Tracking 340 plants. And 14 critters.|
Located near Loch Raven Reservoir in Glen Arm Maryland. Our 1 acre property was an apple orchad in it's former glory. We are dedicated to the process in converting the land into a polyculture system of food abundance which we hope to share with the community in the near future. This website is an open system we are developing to track plants, mushrooms and even critters growing locally. Planted perennials, veggie gardens, nursery stock, experiments with growing systems, harvests and failures are captured in a wikipedia-like arrangement. We also try to list some good vegetarian recipes.
