I feel like I should be living in my grandparents time. Have been working like crazy past few months and it had paid off. Now 2 of my neighbours have dug there yards up and put in vegetable gardens. They have both come and asked for propagation material for some of my stranger plants. Have a group of people I work with in our community gardens and we all swap seedlings and produce. Grocery bill is down by about 90% compared to 4-5 years ago. Here is my first crop of native plums, so very sour they are awesome, about to become chutney.

They look great and that is an amazing food forest!

I spent the Summer of 1964 on my uncles dairy farm. Just outside the door of the milking parlor, where we let the cows out, there was a plum tree there. I picked them right off the tree and ate those things like they were going out of style.They were sweet, but not that juicy because we were in the middle of a 7 year drought.

yeah, that is how my kids grew up, they would/could graze all day out in teh yard, we had acreage back then, now limited to a tiny suburban back yard, though it does provide about 90% of our food most weeks. We just eat what is in season and freeze any suppresses we don't swap with others. Though the food dehydrator is being used a lot.
