We thoroughly enjoyed product testing!  The camp size rocket stove produced an extremely powerful flame.

VEGETATIVE PERIMETER SECURITY

Being a pacifist by nature, my take on security is rather lofty.¬† I mean, going down for what you believe in is probably not an easy task.¬† So many variables involved… right and wrong… justice, even security…well..I guess its all just still a big question for me. Hmmm.. Perhaps being passive is just an extension of not wanting to initiate conflict, for ultimate fear of rejection.¬† Interesting. Rejection or Death. WTH.

Psychology aside, the idea of preventive planting seems not too off base.¬† After all- anything that deters an unwanted guest is a good thing.¬† Which dwelling would you penetrate?¬† The one wide open?¬† No Barriers to the many entry ways?¬† Or the home surrounded by the impenetrable wall of flesh ripping plants?¬† I’d definitely pass on the flesh ripping….¬†¬†The rest of this story deals with the planting of and ultimate growing success…resulting in this being a GOOD IDEA!¬†

Plant your security!

Bromeliads:¬† Planted a circle of them a few years back…and now have an impenetrable barrier encircling the entryway to 019the house. Looks like a good plan to me.¬† Ultimately, say a four foot wide tract of these plants will most likely keep a foot soldier out.¬†Low to the ground and very sharp, these plants make crossing into your space a challenge, thus deterring any traffic.¬†¬†Bromeliads also serve as housing for many insect eating organisms- frogs, for example.¬† Security and bug control. And- they reproduce with no¬†work on your part.¬†¬†Nice combination!

 

Bouganvilla:¬† Planted some for a fence barrier a few years back- now, it has grown into a natural 017tunnel… with proper training and a few other plantings, this too can be an impenetratable wall of vegetation- complete with razor sharp thorns. Great¬†security!¬† Much more aesthetic than razor wire itself.¬† Bouganvilla comes in many colors, and is strikingly beautiful with little maintenance needed.

 023

Bamboo:¬† WOW.¬† Planted this a few years back as well… a small patch of clumping bamboo has resulted in this jungle of staggered woody stems- impenetratable as well. You couldnt get through THAT!¬† An added plus is being able to use bamboo in your garden..or part of a building project.¬†

 

Pigeon Peas:  This was a surprise.  Planted last season, these little peas turned into a 6 foot tree! I 024plan to crop off the tops to stimulate some horizontal growth, and plant a bush- maybe thorny blackberries  to fill in the space at the bottom.  An edible impenetrable perimeter.  Even better.  This years harvest?  Pretty phenomenal.

 

Edible Perimeter Security:¬† Plantings such as the pineapple, the pigeon peas, the thorny blackberries…these are dual purpose for sure.¬† Limited to your imagination and your growing zone, you too can eat your security! LOL.020

 

Medicinal Perimeter Security:¬† Aloe Vera.¬† Planted a while back, these small plants grow and multiply with little maintenance.¬† It’s 021great to run out and cut some Aloe when you really need it.¬† All these plants together make a fine perimeter zone of¬†flesh gnarling thorns making for difficult¬†terrain.¬† Nice.

Check with your local Extension Service to find out the best plants for your area.  Then, have fun choosing and planting!  Dont forget to water and feed!
