Central Point Land - 7 acres, Zip Code 97502

A few pines around

Gambel Oaks

Gambels dominate the landscape on the eastern hillside and hilltop

Strengthen the ecosystem by increasing tree diversity... and stack functions by planting..., Fruit trees!, Fruits humans love!, Fruits deer love too, to distract from the veggie garden!, Fruits birds love too, to distract them from the veggie garden!





Dropped leaves

Last week: no rain for weeks, 100 degrees F, and under 2-6 inches of leaves, the soil is black and moist!, Add compost to wet areas to accelerate decay and accelerate ecosystem maturity, Introduce mycelium to the wet areas to accelerate the ecosystem maturity, Dig out chinampas and swales at the hill bottom to retain more water on the land

Lots of songbirds

Very active from sunrise mid morning

Quieter in the afternoon

Quieter on rainy days

Fill the existing birdfeeders with seeds that can grow and bring more plant diversity

The house is on the eastern slope

Gets warm in the morning

Holds heat all day

Hot in hot summer!, Plant grape arbors around the house, Leaves shade in summer, Bare vines in winter let the sun through!, Grapes!, Wine!, Cool design opportunities... viva Vertecology!, Work in a solar chimney that can be opened in summer and closed in winter

Warm in the cold winter

Wild Turkeys

Active in the early AM

War between the US and the indigenous people 1850's to 1860's

Logging, clearcutting?

Second generation forest

Lots of mosquitoes in the evening

Frogs audible at night

Water somewhere nearby

Introduce mosquito fish

Well depth: 6 feet

Very high water table

Tall grasses at the bottom of the hill and in the valley

Pioneer species

Some of the grass has been mowed to less than 6 inches

In low grassland: no rain for weeks, 100 degrees F, and the soil is dust!, Mowing the grass = permanent, dry dusty soil. Mowing = short term elimination of the fire hazard but long term stunting of evolutionary succession and permanent fire worry., Introduce mowing alternatives..., Horses?, Goats?, Cattle?

Future scenarios

The permaculture/wildcrafting scenario: the forest creeps down the hillside. Temperature changes dampen. More lush, robust, human sustaining and diverse ecology.

Desertification future scenario: flash floods, erosion, the land can't hold water and the ecology fades.

Wire around former veggie garden

Deer in the veggie garden!
