Permaculture - Vine Tree Farm by Anonymous on May 8th, 2009, 1:44 pm
This blog concerns the farm I moved into last August. After a hectic few months renovating part of our main building as a holiday cottage (we have a mortgage to pay) I can now pay attention to the land itself: 62 acres, Gloucestershire, England, which I am setting up as a forest farm on permaculture principles.

Since I'm still in the first year, a lot of what I'm doing right now is planning and evaluation; walking the land to see what is already actually growing, what is the soil pH? what are the various microclimates on the site? etc.

As time goes on, I'll add in a bit of "the story so far".... but here's the entry for today

Mushrooms

O, seeker of peace,
O, seeker of joy,
Where find you these treasures?
In self, or in riches?

Looking, but not seeing.
Listening, but not hearing.
Life without living, free yet bound,
Decisive yet uncertain.
Bound by illusion, immersed in ones own thoughts;
rushing here and there, yet going nowhere fast.

Be silent; you will hear.
Be still; you will see.
Speaking, yet unheard, sits the sparrow in the oak.
Silent and unseen, rooted flower in the grass.
Why do you hurry? Why do you rush?
Where do you go?

O, Seeker of Light;
In darkness you do search, but in light will you find.
O, Seeker of Life;
In death you do seek, but in life will you find.

You who walk through air,
You who walk through water;
What see you? This and that, and that and this?
Here and there, and there and here?
Many are the faces of One;
this IS that, and that IS this.
All is one, and one is all,
yet divided and apart see you all things.

Shapes and forms, shifting and changing,
but illusions are these: to...

The New Layout by BioWizard on May 5th, 2009, 4:53 pm
I've spent the past 2 weeks working near nonstop on upgrading the forums. I'm tired and I'm annoyed with all the bugs that had to be fixed. There are still some more processes to run and some kinks to iron out. I just want this to be done already! The last few days have been exceptionally taxing. Nobody should ever have to do this much coding in a short amount of time, while they're working on their dissertation research...

Masters dissertation. by Anonymous on May 5th, 2009, 9:39 am
The deadline for my masters dissertation is rapidly approaching. I am currently trying to go through my draft in order to tart it up and make it into a thirty page rollercoaster of emotions rather than the dull chronicle of what is meant to be a year's worth of work that it currently is. I wish that had I not been so lazy and actually managed to make a decent measurement before the Easter holiday (or during it) as was planned. I then could have spent more time writing it up until I was happy with it.

Getting it out of the way will be good though. In a mere 11 hours I'll be one step closer to graduating.
