I have some new small 1/4 acre spots in my woods that have been cleared. I am trying to figure out what to plant. Any suggestions on how to redevelop the area? Its just bare soil now from where they lumber guys dragged out the logs. its not really too rutted up or anything like that.
I am thinking of trying to put at least one food tree in each spot and then growing around it. but i am struggling to come up with plants that i can grow in the woods. Id say we are looking at 4 hours of sunlight.
Currants might work, and mulberries are an understory tree.
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.
