Currently, I am planning my guild plants to put around them this spring. I have most of the perennial seeds (which I will be sowing this coming week), divisions from current plants, need to order some comfrey, and deciding on the support trees....trying to talk myself into black locust even though our state considers it a threat. Trying to overcome compliance. Come on Spring!

I have swales dug. Able to get 9 grafted frit trees in backyard and up to 10 in the front.
