You so much space that it'll take a while to fill that with a food forest. There is only so much you can do in your spare time. I have the opposite problem, lots of time but little space. I'm working on super-filling my space, and gradually converting stuff into edibles, but another option I've been thinking about is trying to work out a deal with the community, or town to do something in the green space directly behind my home. It's a green strip that was mandated by the town for the development, that I believe is turned over to the community to maintain. They mow its mostly grass and that's about it. It is probably about a couple of acres in total, and I'm wondering if they might be open to plantings in that space? Hmmmm....

Keith, I noticed you have no structures on your property. What are your plans for a greenhouse, if any? I'm putting in a hothouse for next Spring and thinking about some sort of cold room... I also noticed you don't really have a garden, per se but just plant a few veggies here and there, like the odd tomato, beet and of course Jerusalem Artichoke but not a full menu of basics like peas, beans, carrots.... Any particular reason outside of being too busy?

Yes it is definitely a matter of priorities, I agree. The Nebraska one is exceptional... I'm putting in a mini-7ft by 12ft greenhouse/hothouse mainly for extending the season a month on both ends. Total cost less than $500 and didn't take much time.... I'll see next summer how it does.

Hey, I had read somewhere that Nasturtiums are supposedly nitrogen~fixers, but haven’t been able to confirm that. Do you know? Also read a blog saying Dandelions a dynamic accumulator?
