My husband and I just moved to ten acres in North / Central Saskatchewan (Zone 2), and are trying to figure out what to clear, and what to plant (the acreage is badly overgrown, mostly with caraganas, which at least fix nitrogen, I suppose, but are a bloody nuisance in this climate). We've already ordered a number of hardy fruit and nut trees, but have not really figured out what else we will put in.
In addition, we have some land further south in the province (Zone 3b), which we would like to eventually use for a tree-crop based market garden, using permaculture concepts. We've been planting trees down there for a few years, now, but again would certainly not mind advice or suggestions for what all else to plant.
It is challenging to find out what even grows here, let alone figuring out what would go well with what...Is there anyone in SK already doing this?
