Just wanted to introduce myself properly. My name is Leah. My husband, son and I live in a wooded area in Missouri (zone 6). We’re converting our big back yard into a food forest (where there are already mature black walnut, ash, hackberry, redbud and mulberry trees) and doing some creative edible landscaping in the front. Think cottage garden style in the front, food forest jungle in the back. We’re fighting weeds, erosion, clay soil, and soon city codes as we will be attempting to homestead within city limits. Long time reader, finally made my own account to join the conversation! Thanks for having me!

Hello Leah,

So what parts of Missouri are you at?  I live next door in Southern Illinois, just outside Carbondale.

Welcome to Permies. This has become my favorite home on the Internet.

Eric
 
If you have a bad day in October, have a slice of banana cream pie. And this tiny ad:
