Includes a list of food forest trees we've ordered for 2011. There's so much great plant material out there!
We made some money just in time to put a big tree order in. A list follows. We will probably order more. Hopefully, this list will give aspiring forest gardeners some idea of what is available. We ordered from Burnt Ridge, Grimo, One Green World, and Raintree.
This is a more complete reference to to food forest possibilities of the region, based on my observations and research.
Cold weather and my zombifying work shedule have delayed much of the work we planned for this month. We did manage to tap some of our birch trees for syrup, although it may be too early, as yields have been small.
