First post been visiting site for couple years. Finally joined. I have just moved to Central Florida from Southern Colorado. I am planning to grow food forest on my 1acre lot. I have started my mulching and compost bins but my question is how do I start. I understand the basics of food forest and the aging of the forest. Do I plant everything I want in the forest at the same time or do I just start with n-fixers. I'm still trying to catalog what is here. I have some type of orange tree but has not been taken care of so it will need help. There is some small clovers like 4 leaf type not sure if that compares to red clover. Lot is sand with little bio-mater has a vine grass cover. Lot has couple large oak trees. A bottle brush bush few other small plants I have yet to identify as it is still winter all may start changing soon. I want to get fruit trees in the ground as soon as possible but want them to have healthy ground to grow in. Sorry this post is all over the place guess what I'm really asking is can I start planting long term fruit trees now or do I need to wait till I build up the soil. I should also mention I have a black thumb I have a lot of trouble growing anything. That is why the food forest appeals to me it takes care of its self for the most part.
