Link salad: the Homegrown Evolution fanmail edition

Dear Erik and Kelly,

I love your blog. I was going to do a general link article to cool stuff I’ve been looking at on the interwebby thing today. But quite frankly, I didn’t get past your site. There’s simply just too much interesting information and I get trapped reading every post. I think you guys rock! And so in honour, my link salad of a post is now entirely devoted to you…

I’ve been looking for perennial vegetables to grow in our food forest so loved the article on chinese artichokes / crosne / Stachys affinisgreat pics!

Link to Eric Toensmeier video (author of Perennial Vegetables and Edible Forest Gardens) was very useful.

And you’ve gone nettle insane – harvesting, fertilisers, infusions.

I also love the fact that one of your fave veges is NZ spinach – the only NZ native to be commercially cultivated for food.

You provide great advice with good examples, such as in Seeding change:

Last year a fungal disease, late blight, infected gardens due to seedlings grown at large nurseries in the south and sold at big box retailers up and down the east coast (read more about that in an excellent editorial, You Say Tomato, I Say Agricultural Disaster). Plant seeds and you help keep your garden disease free.

I whole-heartedly agree with your summation of Avatar and was very pleased to hear I wasn’t the only person to think of Paul Stamets.

And thank you for introducing me to Lloyd Kahn who’s blog I also follow religiously.

When I grow up I want to have a cool blog like yours. Ohh and join the Women’s Land Army of course!

Your’s in all fangirl-iness,  Anna xx
