So you might not be worrying about trees just yet. But if you want some persimmon seedlings in buckets, I have extras I could share. If you happen to be within a reasonable driving distance, there might be other wild stuff on this 40 acres that you'ld like one day, too. Feel free to PM me any time with a "neighbor, have you got a cup of persimmon seeds?" or whatever...

There are two organic farms near me that may have seed this year. One will definitely be selling okra seed. Not sure of the variety, but I can find out. It is unusual because even older, larger okra are still soft.
I've been sharing permaculture videos with them hoping to encourage adding burms and planting permanent crops instead of or at least in addition to the plasticulture they're using now. Depending upon what kind of seed you need, there is usually a woman in Oklahoma selling large numbers of open pollinated organically grown seed for $50 on Craigslist. If you don't see the ad (look in Tulsa) I've probably got her contact information saved.
Maybe we can do some trading or I can raise some cash to hire some machine work done. If you use Skype, the easiest way to reach me is to connect with me there. (Username GrowMap).
