I've been lurking here for a long time, but this is my first post.
Earlier this year I purchased my first home on 6 acres in Iowa. I am USDA zone 5 and there is a gentle slope from north to south through most of the property. I own and am reading Gaia's garden, but most of my permaculture education is from Jack Spirko and Paul Wheaton podcasts. I am trying to figure out some good options for a permaculture plan. What do you guys think?
This is a satellite picture of the property.
This is an aerial taken in the morning this summer.
These are taken from my south facing back porch.

These were taken from my north facing front porch
Hopefully all these pictures are helpful, I'd be happy to take any other someone might want as well.
