I remember my vegan dreams of a food forest.  What remains?

This lovely entry at Hunt. Gather. Love. inspired me.  Oh, chanterelles…

In our garden we have a little citrus orchard beginning of lemon, grapefruit, orange and cumquat; we should add Tahitian lime and the Australian finger lime and the Buddha’s Hand.  Last weekend we planted a black mulberry down the back, the same kind as my Nana had in her back yard, the kind I loved to climb with purple-stained hands.  We planted an almond tree down the back as well, papershell.  In the front against the fence I have two deciduous trees, a pear and a prune, and I plan to espalier them against the fence and add cherries.

We have raspberry canes and we’ve planted a currant bush, cape gooseberry, and lingon berry.   Next autumn I should plant blueberries.  Blackberries grow wild and sweet here, but we could plant some boyson berries to add to the mix.
