What would be the ideal plants to include here? I'm planning out my first project in SW Michigan and I know there are some amazing plants it would be easy to miss. Can you share some plants you believe would really be fantastic members of the food forest?

Thanks so much for any advice.

I like to start with Eric Toensmeier's plant lists myself. Between his mid-Atlantic and Colorado lists, there's a lot of options.
