I've been on this site for over 2 years now.Many of you have watched My vid's Gophermans Little Farm, and Gophermans Little Farm 2.0. My trees are coming along great. Some are only in their 2nd season and I have planted more this year. I am getting fruit sets on lemons and oranges, Passion Fruit and Fejoa's (Pinapple Guava) I have been watching food forest video's for a couple years now and have decided to just do it. Level one is taking shape, That would be the shade tree element, Level 2 is coming along nicely. I have a Fruiting Goji Berry bush, I am taking long branches and cutting them into 3-4 pieces and sticking them 3" into wet potting soil and so far have successfully restarted about 40-50 cuttings. ( Unbelievably easy) , these as well as a few other additions, like more blue berries, and a few dwarf Mulberries I have ordered will make up the second tier, Shade tolerant layer. My Herb Garden is out of control so I will separate out clump of mint, Oregano, Thyme, and Basil, get them rooted and plant them as a roaming ground cover. Because my property is so big, I am having a H*** of a time finding wood chips to cover it. I have contacted tree services to no avail, so I am buying a wood chipper and making my own. I'm going to do it in sections and work my way across the whole front of the property. Perennial plants will make up the majority of everything planted, with annuals being grown in raised beds until the system takes off enough to use existing tree's for climbing vines. I am moving my chicken tractor into position today and putting my Turkey and Chicken Hatch in their till they eat it down to nothing, I have found a good source for wood shavings (coarse sawdust) and will use that for ground cover till I buy my wood chipper. I will post Pic's as soon as the sun comes up and will post Vid's as the project progresses. The Youtube video's I have seen range from Supper Cool, to Huh, there are many approaches to this, only limited to the imagination of the perpetrator. I have a vivid imagination, should be interesting!
