Audiobook! That’s how I read most of my books these days, too. If it’s really good and can be used as a reference, then I buy the print version. We can distribute to libraries as well and get a larger audience.
The entire 2-acre lot is wooded; the pines are about 70-80' tall and shade the south-east corner. The other sides slope significantly and have more of a hardwood forest, which I had planned to leave intact except for a few shrubs here and there. I was thinking about growing several fruit trees in addition to berries where the pines are now; what else could grow underneath them?
Hi! I've been getting the dailyish emails and listening to pod-casts for about two months, and just realize I wasn't registered with the forums. So now I'm official! I just bought my little homestead in March and am hoping to have a garden started by next spring - right now it's woods and slopes and streams... I am very glad to find this sight and all the experience here. Thanks!
I recently bought some land and am planning a forest garden. First, though, the large pine trees need to be removed (it was a pasture about 30 years ago...). Should I have the stumps just cut to the ground and plant around them, allowing them to slowly compost in place, or have the stumps removed?
Thanks for the Q and A, Mr. Sobkowiak!
