Reinvisioning the forest garden
Four years later, the area is
really more of an orchard than a forest garden, but a couple of years
of adding high
value vegetables beyond the trees' root zone has won the troubled
area from the weeds, and I feel ready to start expanding back out into
more diversified plantings. Now I realize that my goals with
non-fruit plantings should be much simpler, focused around building
quality soil as quickly as possible so the trees will have something
other than waterlogged clay to expand their roots into as they grow.
