From 11-4 on Sunday, we had a consistent flow of knowledgeable and interested persons coming through our yard during the Pennypack Garden and Farm Tour. A very positive day for us! I so enjoyed sharing and talking about what I love. As expected, I gained many useful ideas from the experienced and was challenged with questions to which I knew not the answers. I’ll get to work on them! I’m happy to say the bees were very well behaved and tolerated the unusual activity so near to their homestead. I did finish the pear tree guild schematic for the tour and want to publish it here. Feel free to ask questions or give feedback. Feel free to share this and plant this guild. Remember that it is experimental. Please, do not publish this as your own work.

I was going to work on digging my swale today. I was dreaming about digging that swale! But, today, it rains. So, I will finish the more refined draft of the back and sideyard garden designs for a client. It will be a good day!
