Hi everyone,
I'm in Thomaston, CT (Western Connecticut), zone 6a bordering zone 5b. My elevation is 480 feet. The soil is sandy/loam I want to say. I'm in the lower part of town with many hills/mountains surrounding, no view tho.
I'm looking to plant everything and anything that thrives.
So far I have 2 apples, Illinios everbearing mulberry, medlar, Hardy cactus, cornelian cherry, garlic, Asian pears, rhubarb
I have access to strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, asparagus, honey berry, herbs, Jerusalem artichoke, paw paw, American persimmon.
I know there is so much more to collect and build with.  There is a great nursery up the street who has a lots of plants, but not all.
I'm looking for people near me to exchange or buy plants, especially dwarf fruit trees, seems you have to order almost a year in advance to get them.
I'm also going to be planting stone fruits by seed in a larger area, if you have some really good sooner fruit, please contact me. I'll be keeping track of where I get each seed from so you can name the variety if you give it to me, good way of keeping in touch.
This will happen in mid June when I leave Florida and driver north, maybe I should find some nurseries on my way up to buy plants.
Thank you for reading this, any help would be appreciated.

I've been to multiple farms in South Florida. There are so many resources here, especially free resources. Call all the tree services near you, use google.com and yelp.com to find tree services. Then have them dump loads right where you want to grow. I have them dump right next to each load, that's four feet deep of mulch. It breaks down fast, use biochar to help lengthen the nutrients life. Spread minerals, such as rock dust/stone dust 10 tons per acre per year very generous amount, if you can find some from local quarries the better, also spread salt 75 pounds per acre per year maximum. Catch rainwater in giant containers(as large as possible) with a nozzle at the bottom. Get a large aerator/bubble to create compost tea in giant container, water entire property with compost tea. Pull back the mulch a half foot deep for small plants and put in compost, for large trees, pull back mulch a few feet and put in compost, kinda like a potted plant. This will get you amazing results, look up Pete Kanaris GreendDreamsFL Jubilee farm on YouTube and you will see how much growth you can get, if you do this you will be harvest bananas in 4 months.
