Updated Walk-Thru of the Swale and Food Forest Project

Today I did another video tour of the swale project. It’s been about a month since the last one. There have been significant changes in just a month.

There is a lot more growth on the upper swale. The bare root trees we planted about 15 months ago are really taking off. Several of them have set fruit, which surprises me since they are so new.

The trees we planted in the lower swale about 10 weeks ago are leafing out well. Most of the blackberries and raspberries have developed leaves and some even have flowers.

I’ve planted several new trees in the grassy area between the swales and most of it is now covered with a thick layer of wood chips.

Enjoy the tour:
