My self-summary
Nature loving ex-city dweller with passion for forests, streams and countryside. Growing garlic, vegetables also fruit trees, bushes and so on..:)
What I’m doing with my life
Well.....I am working hard (well, not too hard;) but certainly stubbornly on fulfillment of my dreams which are all about sustainability, independence and making world better place for living at least for me and my family:p, that part of world I am able to influence by my activity. I have small lot of land where I try to practice what I read in a theory, in near future I would love to expand a bit:), specifically I love idea of edible forest gardens:)

To gather inspiration from more experienced and hopefully inspire less experienced.

I am quite sure we are heading to interesting times and I guess more and more people are finally able to figure it out....So skills I like to practice - gardening with strong aspect of sustainability - will be certainly very helpful, if nothing else, I want to have under my control what am I eating. And I am pretty sure there are enough people who prefer local products over some kind of anonymous tasteless junk.;)

So I would love to find how to work in agriculture in a way that is making enough profit to being able to expand by actual working in this sector and not by transferring resources from outside job, which is of course happening now:) and meanwhile being sustainable by not exhausting land I have but making the opposite, making it better than it was before I aquired it. Starting idea is, that this might be possible by proper combination of intensive and extensive ways of working with land. So I have many theoretical ideas, all I need is to to make it real. We will see in the future.

Update: And future is almost here..recently I switched my job to part time mode. I am pretty modest, but yes l need some cash from the outside source... And so I have much much more time for gathering of agriculture experience and doing some more or less "weird" experiments and so on...
I’m really good at
gathering information I am interested in and I am interested in really many subjects.:) Perhaps too many to have sufficient knowledge about all I am interested in. Of course I am good at my job.;) And year after year I am getting better in growing garlic;) If you are interested and you are living currently in Prague or in Eastern Bohemia (specifically Pardubice and Iron Mountains:) ) and you want to taste, just let me few words :D Of course I am planning much more than garlic, but this is good starter;)
The first things people usually notice about me
I dont know....I did not ask them:p
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite books - stuff about nature, permaculture, agriculture, religion and history. I do read even fiction, I used to read it much more in the past, but from time to time I still have periods for reading just for enjoymenet:)For example good old classics of science fiction.:) Books by Henlein, P.K.Dick and John Wyndham.:)
Relliance of the Traveller - really interesting source about islam - best way how to find out things about islam is to read sources written by muslims for muslims:) Another of this sort is Quran:) Also recommendable :) Truth is that in the past I tried to study this religion a lot, but I have changed my priorities and now I am following it just as a bit meaningless and weird hobby...:) Anyway I would bet that of all major and global religions this one is by far the most stupid...well what can you expect when its founder was such a weirdo like Muhammad:p
Music - classical, jazz, folk, rock, metal and its variations. You can find most of my favorite bands via progarchives:)

I try to do not eat too much meat and junkfood, but in this case my willpower often fails me:)

I have to admit that is really nice to buy and read books about permaculture, but to practice it is another matter. I am afraid that under current conditions I will be able just to use some aspects of it, not system as a whole.

Anyway I think even practicing some aspects is better than nothing :)
Six things I could never do without
I changed my mind and so I wont restrict myself :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
world we are living in and I know it is quite worthless but I can´t help myself.

Well perhaps finally there is a chance to make world great again. :D
On a typical Friday night I am
Oh....on Friday night I a mostly sleeping after another hard and semi-productive working day in the fields or preparing for working day on Saturday. :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Normally I have to wear glasses :) Update: In fact I stopped with this custom after all and now I keep them on just because of driving, better safe than sorry. :D
You should message me if
you are interested in me, nature, permaculture, history, present and perhaps even future;), if you are interested in home grown czech garlic, currants, gooseberries, elderberry, in future also apples, pears - seems not:(, walnuts, hazels and hopefully also some chestnuts and so on and so on. Oh and you should write if you have any intelligent suggestion of what to grow :)
