"Also note that I tag this as "food forest" even though you will be seeing us plant typical garden vegetables and herbs. The reason for this is that our first year was a stress test- of both ourselves and the soil.

Once Fall 2011 comes around you will see us planting a perennial cover crop to prepare the soil for conversion to food forest."
