I'm in Gulfport, MS for the next 5 months. Is there anything permie related in the Gulfport area?

I live near Laurel and am either currently or in the very near future will be doing the following:
- expanding my Hugelkultur beds,
- expanding a Ruth Stout style garden,
- establishing a forest garden,
- expanding a black walnut orchard (hope to plant about 3-4 hundred germinated nuts this spring)
- planting ten pure American chestnuts as a participating member of the American Chestnut Cooperators Foundation,
- digging some/several Swales about my home and in our pasture to solve an erosion problem
- planting a bunch of allegheny chinquapins around our area (gorilla gardening) to help re-establish their numbers

Can you use a shovel?

Hi, George. You get those chestnuts and walnuts planted yet?

The short answer to your question is yes, I have planted ten pure American chestnuts, and to date, have planted 429 black walnuts. For a more detailed explanation, I do the majority of my posting on a less heavily trafficked forum. If I may be so bold, and if you would like to see the extent of what's been done so far this year, please check out Permsteading.com.
