Food Forest from Nitrogen Fixing Tree
Last winter I had a nitrogen fixing tree removed from the bottom of my garden.
The tree was mulched and a no dig garden built from the tree.
Now where the tree created shade a food forest is flourishing.
This paw paw tree rescued from an abandoned garden has its first crop of fruit, okra plants supply regular meals and am about to harvest the first arrowroot tubers.
And at the bottom of the new food forest area Drumstick Trees continue to grow among the sweet potatoes and pumpkins, while a turmeric flower brings beauty to the sea of green.
