Know Your Healthy Berries
Acai, Maqui And Many Other Popular Berries That Will Change Your Life And Health. Berries have been demonstrated to be some of the healthiest foods on the planet. Each month or so it seems fresh research is being brought out and new berries are being exposed and analyzed for their health giving attributes.
A (bylaw-mandated) driveway parking area was created using recycled chimney bricks, with strawberries planted along a centre divider. Under the living wall to the north of the berry patch is a bay leaf hedge to provide an edible evergreen screen. Recycled chimney bricks were used to create two lanes of hard-surface driveway, which double as a berry patch. Strawberries were planted down the centre of the two lanes, with an apple tree and raspberries planted against the west side of the studio and blueberries along the opposing fence.
In 1978 my wife and I set out to develop this 9 acres of land we own on top of a mountain here in Vermont, to be as near as possible, self-sufficient by the time we retire. We have constructed a 65 foot tower on top of which we have put a 450 watt, 12 volt DC windmill. Also we have built, as a back-up charging unit, a 12 volt DC alternator, designed our own control panel that feeds 2 separate battery packs. We also have a commercial built AC generator which we start up approximately once a week to do our washing, vacuuming, etc. We hope very soon to add solar panels for charging these batteries also. We have pure mountain spring water, gravity fed into our home. We also built our own compost toilet and garbage disposal. We heat our place with firewood cut from our own land, in a stove we built from 2 oil barrels which utilizes a catalytic combustor. We have set out fruit and nut trees, a variety of berries, grapes and of course we grow our own garden for vegetables. Any project...
