Lessons in Permaculture

Perhaps you like fresh herbs in nearly every meal. Where should you plant your herbs? The cofounder of permaculture, Bill Mollison, offers some guidance.

"When you get up in the morning and the dew is on the ground," he says, "put on your woolly bathrobe and your fuzzy slippers. Then walk outside to cut some chives and the other herbs for your omelet. When you get back inside, if your slippers are wet, your herbs are too far away."

  1. Right now, I think my slippers would be frosty, not wet.
