Hi, and as the rest have said, thank you for being with us. I'm interested in balancing the qualities of food (sweet, salty, sour, bitter, pungent, astringent) in a diet as well as nutritional/antioxidant value and producing sufficient quantity. Do you know of any sour perennials to grow? What are your favorite perennial foods to grow in terms of ease, volume of production, and aesthetic value?  - Luke

Hi Crystal! My wife and I just got a quarter acre of land in the heart of the city, and we're excited to convert our lawn into the food forest dream. One question I have is if there's any way to use permaculture to reduce sun exposure to the house - I imagine a 30-foot metal trellis that sits 6" off of the house, and running a sun-loving vine with berries that birds eat all up it, as a way to feed the birds and hopefully save some more of the ground berries for us ground dwellers. Have you heard of anything like this? My other question is what to do with a 15x30 foot patch of the backyard that has grass now but has gravel all underneath it? We were thinking of doing clover and keeping it relatively bare for a play area and zone for classes. Thank you!
