Here’s the before:
And the after:
Here’s a shot from 2012 from beside the front door:
And here’s a shot from a few days ago:
And a follow up from last week:
That’s only three years from one shot to the next. Ah, Florida!
In that shot there are tangerines… figs… root beer plant… cassava… apple… pawpaws… sumac… loquat… malanga… arrowroot…. Japanese raisin tree… there’s a lot of food packed in just that little piece of the food forest.

My food forest philosophy and helpful species lists are in my short book Create Your Own Florida Food Forest, available in both paperback and kindle version on Amazon. I’ve also recently released it as an audiobook – you can get that version here.

This food forest and home are now for sale, so contact me if you’re interested in an acre of productive paradise. I’m going to post more photos soon!
