Here we are at Fall…. oh so fast, Summer has passed! Where did the time go? This season has been so abundant we could hardly keep up with the harvesting of all the fruit that is coming on in our newer systems. First were Cherries, honey berries, goumi berry, then plumbs, raspberries, shipova and asian pear. then the finger was out of the dike all the other fruit came ripe, apples, grapes, mulberries, walnuts, filberts, chestnuts and more. We could hardly keep up with gathering off our trees. Some firs time bearers this year were the pine nuts and the shipova OMG how good! Along with many new apple and pear varieties. Not to mentioning our annual crops that all did well.
I like to plant trees and shrubs in the Fall for the most part because it gives the plant all winter to set roots while the top is dormant. During the winter there is lots of water and not a lot of sun so the plants put their energy into setting up a good root system so they head into Summer well established. The second best time to plant perennials is early in the Spring but it gives the plant less time to set roots. With some plants I do prefer to plant in the Spring is if the plant is frost sensitive like a fig, citrus or elderberry. These plants like to have a well established root system before the go through a good freeze.
We want to share high density food nutrition abundance with everyone so we have put a lot of energy into our nursery plant propagation and it did well this year. We are well stocked in productive permaculture plants to help get your system kickstarted with berries, fruit and nut trees, vines, nitrogen fixers and more! What do you need in your system?
