The cheapest and most accessible bulk seed I've been able to find is to grow Food Plots for Deer.

I've found big bags of alfalfa, clovers, chicory, rye grass plus many more useful plants.

Agreed! One such plant is Mullein

Before I did any planning outside of the pink (or blue) area I would cover the property with red, crimson and white dutch clover seed and simply watch for a year. You will learn a lot.

Does the little patch in the upper right belong to you? The one that's overgrown and green looking? If so a walk through there could tell you much about existing species and growing conditions.

Any indicator plants? I expect plantains and lambsquarters.

I love the idea of a central pond with hugelkulture beds forming an L in the SW corner and a 7 in the NE. Could switch that up depending on the wind.

I'm not so sure the second book is one to read through.

The first book is a good read and well worth it.

The second book is a reference manual with some really helpful tables. I'm a fan of being succinct which made reading the second book pretty difficult. A lot of information was just repeated using different words. The book could have been only half as thick as it is.
