This fall I’ve been planting a small guerrilla forest garden on some unused public land. My idea is trying to create a system that, once established, continues to produce free food for people year after year even if I (or anybody else) weren’t there to tend to it. So far my plantings include:

- white oak
- siberian peashrub
- gooseberry
- raspberry
- black currant
- strawberry
- lovage
- garlic
- walking onion

I’d love to hear if you guys have ideas what other hardy perennials I could be planting, or any other thoughts about doing this kind of work.

It seems that the voles got most of my potatoes, but at least they left a few small ones for me. One of the problems with living mulch seems to be that it provides an ideal habitat for voles.

We'll see how these potatoes are going to yield. So far they're looking alright, but hopefully the voles won't harvest them before I do.

My fava beans after almost 4 weeks without a single drop of water and temperatures in 25-30C range. Not expecting a great harvest, but it seems that I'll be getting at least a few nice pods and most importantly some seeds that are adapted to drought conditions.
