RE: Food Forest Update (First Half of May 2018) - Garden Journal

Oh wow, your place looks beautiful. We are working on ours slowly.

My lettuce and spinach didn't have a chance, spinach is now bolting due to the hot OK weather and it's spring!

The sudden dip on temps early spring killed our peach and apple blossoms so not expecting any fruits this year.

I will keep an eye on updates on your place. Something to learn from as we are working on our homestead.

How long did you work on your place to be at this point? 4 years at least? (Based on the potato and orchard parts of your post)...


Thank you for your kind words! I am also in Oklahoma. Sounds like you experienced the same crazy Spring weather as we did. Not going to have persimmons this year and I can definitely tell the fruit set on other fruit trees are not as good.

The part of my garden with raised beds are 5 to 6 years old. I started my first year of gardening with two raised beds (6 years ago). I added two more raised beds the following Spring. The original orchard part is 4 years old.
