I came across a log this morning while building a hugulkultur bed (more about that in another post). It was covered in markings made by beetles feeding on the cambium layer just inside the bark. At least I think they were made by beetles.
The markings are very beautiful. They look like runes or glyphs, a language i am unable to decipher. I got the feeling that there is a message for me on this log. I just have to figure out how to learn the language.
I have been an organic gardener for 30 years. I am the manager of the Decatur Farmers Market in Decatur, Ga. It is held on Wednesdays from 4-7.
I live in Stone Mountain, a suburb of Atlanta, GA, where my wife and I will spend the rest of our days creating a model of suburban permaculture. We have 3 acres with a .5 ac. pond, barn and land for growing. We grow veggies, small fruits, herbaceous and woody flowers, herbs, mushrooms, chickens and worms.
We teach classes on organic gardening and sustainable living. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
