Almost four years ago, I planted a tropical food forest – this is how:
Start a bunch of plants in pots, then wander around and plant them everywhere.
I didn’t plant nitrogen-fixers at the beginning, but later I had a cool idea to plant them along with corn in stations, like we planted corn and pigeon peas, and it worked:
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to keep that food forest.
Or, I should say, Providentially I was unable to keep it, as the LORD had better plans for us. I wish I knew what was still growing there. The locals really didn’t understand my gardening at all, and they only some of the trees I planted.
On our new property, we’re doing this all again. This time, I think the LORD will let us stay. We seem to be more stable than we were as expats.
