I just visited Harvest Nursery in Molalla Oregon today. (HIGHLY RECOMMEND) I had just but a few minutes to be there but wanted a wide variety of plants. The gent (ooh, forgot his name, an employee anyway) was so exceedingly helpful! I walked away with my Christmas present from my kids to me this year. Hehe. I love when I can help them out like that.
I'm getting ready to put the shovel to dirt and plant these babies.
BUT FIRST - I got the idea that perhaps it'd be fun for some of you to play 'Plan a guild'
So i put all these plants down for you educated minds and see what you'd put together.
I'm zone 7 in the Pacific Northwest.
My end goal is guilds in rows along shallow swales.
I like the Permaculture Orchard concept of ripening row by row but I'm having trouble wrapping my head around organizing all the variables to make that happen.
I plan on eventually putting poultry, through the lanes and years from now perhaps idaho pasture pigs, and a random couple sheep or coats in rolling corrals to control browse.
Feel free to ask questions to clarify.
Hey, I so appreciate your playing along!
I know I'm missing different layering components so feel free to offer suggestions.
Ready! Set! GO! !
It's about becoming like granny.
