Who is in the North Alabama (Huntsville) area that grows fruit, veggies or fish?  

I am on 0.65 acres in a subdivision and have maybe 50 fruit trees/vines. Jujube, Asian Pear, Asian Persimmon, Kiwi (Hardy and Fuzzy), Fig, Plum, Pluot, muscadine and goumi.
I have some Mulberry Cuttings going now in my heated/LED lighted grow room (Miss Kim, GH-1, Hicks and World's Best).
I also have some Maypop and will soon have Schisandra vines.
I am also starting Nile Tilapia.

Running out of room but not determination.

With a 200ft by 100ft lot you have a 600ft perimeter or 60 trees with 10ft spacing if you did 2 rows it would be 100trees easily. You would still have plenty of space for some intensive gardening and a 20ft by 50ft fish pond.

My wife limits what I can do in the front yard but sometimes I ask for forgiveness instead of permission.
