You may be surprised by all you can grow. I plant squash, pepper, kale, strawberries and running vine veggies under my pear and peach trees. Figs tend to be more of a weird bush so there are less things I want to try with those. Under my smaller fruit trees I plant cucumbers and let them trellis up the tree. They manage to go towards the sun and find their spot.
I think over the last few days we've figured out we should - space things so we're not trampling anything when harvesting fruit
- avoid deep rooting produce that might disturb the young fruit trees' roots
- seek out more edible native perennials
- most any annuals go!
I was really surprised how much we could grow.
I think a food forest is really what our idea is, not just an orchard.
Scott and Steve these veggies you mention are right up our alley! Thanks so much!
