Hi everyone.

The food forest here in a cool temperate environment in the mountains of South Eastern Australia is now about between 4 and 6 years old and it is growing quite nicely and starting to produce some good yields.

I've put a video together showing 50 days of growth this season in a 2 minute video clip. The fruit trees in the video are predominantly in the shady part of the food forest and are mostly Asian pears and apples. There are about 300 various fruit trees on the farm, plus herbs, vegetables, bees and chickens. All good fun.

If you are interested in the farm plan you can have a look at it here:

Hope you enjoy it! If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Chris

Hi Brenda,

Yeah, it takes a few years before the trees start producing. Years ago, this was quite a surprise. If you want to eat fruit, plant the trees years in the past! hehe! javascript:emoticon('');

Glad to hear that your food forest is producing. Good work. I'll check out your website.

Chris
