Ongoing Food Forest Journey
For my food forest it is an ongoing journey.
From three small Papaya trees planted along a bare fence one humid summer it has evolved and continues to evolve step by step.
The second major stage in its journey was when at my neighbor's request I felled a tree on our boundary and used the mulch from the tree to create a no dig garden.
More plantings were made into this.
Last year at this time the major house fire just on the other side of the fence was a major set back for the food forest, but as these pictures show good sustainable methods had created strong trees which not only survived the fire but continue to thrive and give generous food.
