You can just see the wire I strung earlier this week as a support for branches. The strip will be 4′ wide, with nitrogen fixers dotted amongst the other plants.
I think I’ll call it my Four-Foot Food Forest.
Very exciting. It’s going to be epic.
Now here’s a shot of my annual beds as seen from between the Red Angel pomegranate and the moringa tree:
Speaking of things that aren’t chores… here’s a cauliflower we just harvested:
That clocked in at just under 2lbs and had a rich, nutty flavor that beats the tar out of anything I could buy at the store.
On the other side of the white fence where I keep some of my nursery stock, I have a couple of long beds I decided to create using plastic sheeting with holes cut for the transplants. They’ve done really, really well.
We have a lot of cabbages growing. They’re just so cool-looking in the garden I feel compelled to plant them over and over again.
Perhaps all the sauerkraut I make has changed the DNA of my brain, but isn’t this the most gorgeous thing you’ve ever seen?
