I agree with skandi. It used to be considered a subspecies of maitake but now has it's own name.

Fresh valerian root, fresh spearmint and honey. Great muscle relaxer and you'll wake up feeling fully rested.

I believe it's Canadian clearweed, pilea pumila. A sign of moist fertile soil. Hope that helps.

Those second ones are definitely wild strawberries. That would be interesting to see what you get with a cross to the wild strawberry. The cinquefoil is potentilla norvegica, brought to the u.s. by Norwegian pioneers for medicine. What is the white flower? I like to collect and propagate wild plants as well.

I believe you have a rough cinquefoil. It's a weed, distantly related to strawberry, but doesn't make berries. Hope that helps.

Thanks to whoever removed the double-posted pictures. Not sure what I did there.

I cut down the peach tree and measured the stump. It was 4" in diameter and had 4 rings. So pretty much an inch a year. Pruned up the sucker too.

I think it looks like sunburn. Were they started indoors or in a greenhouse? It looks like water acted like a magnifying glass on the edges. If it is sunburn they will grow out of it. Hope that helps.

Average lows in January is something like 54. Yearly average low is 62. Just a couple degrees short of an am/af climate.

 Would love to see photos of your food forest for inspration!  Id like to eventually create walking paths throughout the yard.

 Would you likr some Everglade Tomatoe Seeds?  Weve had a overload this year!

If you look at my profile you can view my permaculture snowbird thread. Lots of pics on there, but I just started last winter, so not as far along as you. I would love some Everglades seeds. I would be happy to contact you when I'm back in Florida in the fall.

Yeah there is a real beauty to a warm temperate climate. I've seen videos of snow falling on pomelos and people harvesting snow blanketed veggies in Sichuan. I think the hills of Georgia would be my second choice after Florida.
But my dream homestead would be somewhere in the central American highlands, like Selva negra, or Antigua.
