Permanent agriculture map of outlying areas. Elderberry/blackberry patch, bush-hogged in autumn, strip-mulched with old carpet and sawdust to create rows within existing thicket, elderberries transplanted from other patches Beehives. Mixed tree crops (black walnut, American persimmon, and paulownia) spaced for easy haymaking between rows. Old pond area (kept relatively wild): bee forage (alder, willow, mountain mint, garen hyssop, Vitex negundo ) encouraged, small aquaculture pond established. Pastureland: goat and chicken forage crops plus drop forage from honey locust, American persimmon, and sawtooth oak (trees require fencing for protection from goats).
