Spring Planting (so far) at Asberry Acres Permaculture Forest Farm

 Black gold! Mostly finished compost in the front, not quite finished behind. New compost is in two big trash cans just to the right, outside the picture.

A few of the Narcissus spp. planted last Sunday already peeking out!

Our 2009 xmas tree. Was sitting in compost for the last year at our last place waiting for a permanent home.
That stand of trees in the distance is over a half mile away. That's the closest thing we have to woods.

Dinosaur Tree - Metasequoia glyptostroboides. It's tiny now...

Portulaca grandiflora for ground cover and pretty flowers. Hopefully will fill in nicely around the daffodils.

Hemerocallis fulva -- naturalizing daylilies. These can be found everywhere along country roads in Indiana. A very pretty edible.

Forgot I had some Helianthus tuberosus dug up from last year that I was going to send to some friends. The tubers decided it was their time to sprout! Sorry guys, I'll get some to you when I dig them up in the Fall. Also had a bunch more (different varieties) ordered for planting this Spring.

Feels really good to see my plan coming to life!
