Does anyone have experience with planting in a suntrap pattern? I'm trying to think of various ways to plant a pear oriented food forest without straight lines and I like the suntrap notion. I could see a problem with this being that the pears flower and fruit at slightly different times due to their different microclimates. Or maybe this effect would be a benefit- avoiding an overload of harvest work at any one time. Any thoughts?
 
It wasn't my idea to go to some crazy nightclub in the middle of nowhere. I just wanted to stay home and cuddle with this tiny ad:
