MEET OUR PERMACULTURE PLANTS:
Lupine. Can be found going to seed under our Cortland apple. As a member of the legume family they fix nitrogen which helps to enrich soil and acts as a green manure. Lupine is deer resistant and attracts butterflies and bees, a popular and beautiful choice for a pollinator garden. If we want apples, we need pollinators! Lupine seeds are edible but require soaking and cooking first. Our lupine was dug up from North Chapel's edible forest garden in Woodstock.
