Crash Gardening S2, Episode 2A: A Tour of My Food Forest

Last summer I posted a food forest video tour that proved to be rather popular.

I've been asked for an update, so Jeff and I filmed one this last week as part of Crash Gardening Season 2.


As you can see, the trees have really taken off. Stay tuned: I'll be posting Pt. II next week!

Wonderful! I want a food forest. David- how did you get the fig tree to root? I tried some cuttings from my Dad's tree. One I tried to root in a bucket of water, the other I planted and hoped for the best. They both died.

A lot of plants will rot if you try to root them in water - figs included.

I rooted mine by sticking multiple 1' pieces into a bucket of potting soil in a shady area, then watering them every couple of days. Over half set roots for me.

You should totally plant a food forest. I can get most of the trees and plants you'd need (plus all the seeds and cuttings you'd like)... just zip me a list.

That would be great. Make sure to add explosions.
