I love this practice of food forestry. I'm wondering whether anyone can give me pointers on what herbs and edibles like to grow under blue oak / grey pine cover. The area I have in mind is zone 9a on a moderately north facing slope.
Grey pine are sometimes referred to as the tree that gives no shade. I think that's what people say. Anyway the ground underneath them still gets a fair amount of sun.

Currently it's mostly native grasses and wild oats here and there under the trees.
Just put the cards in their christmas stocking and PRESTO! They get it now! It's like you're the harry potter of permaculture. richsoil.com/cards
