    The food forest...

    OH, let me try that!

    This is an article basically about permaculture, rather than agriculture. Perennials versus annuals. Interesting concept, if you have the land for it. I don't feel it would ever substitute completely for the diversity you can get from an annual garden, but the benefit is that you basically set it and forget it. Then, after a time, you get yearly crops with very little time input to expand the diversity of your food options.

    In my area here, we get pretty cold winters, so some of these options are limited for me, once I get land. Apples, walnuts, persimmon, possibly pawpaw, blueberry, raspberry, rhubarb, hazelnut, pear, and some others... Heck, they even mention horseradish, which, for some reason, I'm quite partial to. What a back yard that would be, in concert with a nice little annual garden of some of my faves. Add some bees, a few pigs and cows and chickens, and it's like a supermarket in your back yard, heheheh.

    Here's the article. Might make one or two of you think. Sure did me.
