For those of you who haven’t picked up a copy of Create Your Own Florida Food Forest yet, in honor of Compost Everything’s success, the Kindle edition is now on sale for just $2.99 (as is Compost Everything as part of the introductory offer by my publisher.)
If you’re part of the Kindle Unlimited program, you can actually get both books for free with your subscription.
And, speaking of food forests, take a look at these shots I just took:
It’s hard to believe that up-and-coming jungle used to be boring, patchy, hot lawn. Just in these pictures I can spot cassava, black-eyed Susans, Confederate rose, bananas, autumn olive, elderberry, loquat, Japanese persimmon, collards, citrus, apple, pear, honey locust, dwarf mulberry, fig and plenty of great weeds.
You can wander through the yard sampling a wide range of delicious fruits. A few years ago these was nothing.
Why isn’t everyone doing this? It’s like living in a forest that loves you and wants you to be happy.
And I’m very, very happy.

To know David and his family, and visit their home and spend time in the food forest, the tranquility, is absolutely PRICELESS! Walking around the forest the other day waiting for David to return from a trip to the P.O. I was in heaven!! I just wish i had packed a picnic lunch to enjoy while i was there. Huh! I never thought to harvest my lunch while i was there! Darn!!
Heh – thank you.
The photos I post really don't do the yard justice – it's hard to get the feel of how lush everything is, that's for sure. Plus the sound of the cicadas, the butterflies, the birds, the scent of Jasmine… it's definitely become a special place.
