First, here’s what his yard originally looked like:
And this is what he’s done with it in three years:

There’s a man who isn’t afraid of tight spacing! So long as you keep things pruned, fruit trees are manageable in a small space.

I have (yet another) question for you. My husband and I are in the process of purchasing an old farmhouse with 20 acres of mostly pasture. Included in the deal are 11 pallets of potting soil. There are about 450 bags, 2cf each. What is the best way to maximize this? There are no dedicated garden areas as yet. We’ll be starting from scratch. The plan is to start grocery row gardens.
I would start a small plant nursery and propagate lots of seeds and cuttings with it. Potting soil is valuable. You can easily start figs, pomegranates, stone fruits, apple seedlings, berries, etc., then you’ll have them for your Grocery Rows.
