Congrats on your level!!! ~~~
Wow - sounds like a beautiful edible forest. I’m imagining a swirl of colors. Sounds like you’ve been really busy.
For our garden, we just have two 3’x6’ raised beds on the side of our house. We made them out of old doors from our basement and painted them blue, and they look very picturesque. Next to it we have a lemon tree that we just planted this year, which has been a big goal of ours. In the future we’d love to figure out how to do tomatoes…
We also have a persimmon tree, which is both a blessing and a curse. It’s the most popular tree in our neighborhood, judging by the number of people we find sneaking to grab some persimmons in the fall (or knocking on our door explaining that we should give them some.) Sometimes people even bring fruit pickers to get persimmons from the tops of the trees…I feel like such an elderly woman, going out onto the porch and saying “What are you doing??? Get outta my tree!” I think they assume that because we aren’t Asian, we don’t eat them, but we do. I mean yes, before we moved into this house, I’d never eaten a persimmon before, but now it’s become my favorite fruit. We make salad dressing, hot sauce, cakes, and jams out of them, and I also just eat them raw with cream. Next year I’m excited to make 干し柿!
