As far as flowers go I think we should be thrifty and simple. Maybe a few packs of wildflower scattered around would be nice, or something that spreads on its own.

lol. I was thinking it might be fun to make a natural sanctuary of sorts: hedges, trees, flowers, a bench or two, walkways, art, statues: all of which we'd cultivate, make, plant, and upkeep on our own (and even more fun, combine the two thoughts and make a beautiful area that's well-kempt, overgrown, etc.).

That's an idea, though it requires extra time and money. Maybe we could make money as a nursery?

lol, possibly. However, it requires no money at all. I can make phone calls, ask around, and get the seeds to plant. Then you grow the plant, harvest the seeds, and plant more plants. It'd take 3 growing seasons to get going, and then 2 or so more to make worthwhile, but the work is more than worth it (and I'd be willing to put in all the work on the side).

Damn this list is getting big!  How much to information to we want to get about each thing?  I figure we could just reserve enough land to plant in staples so we know we can get sufficient calories and then then the rest of the land just plant in as much of what ever vegetables we want.  Also has any one considered an orchard?  I know apple trees will grow in these climes.  Will any other fruit trees work?

I think orchards are compatible, but they do take up a lot of space. Anybody know yields?

And the herbs and spices are just things that I researched a little about. Mostly things to help with flavor, energy, insomnia, headache, stomachache, pregnancy, menstruation, infection, fever, immunities, etc.

I put the suggest against list up so we could start ruling things out. Figuring out watering cycles, amount of light, space between, etc., would be complicated with too many different plants.

Potato, wheat, and corn will be our main staples, if I remember correctly, and I think we should reserve 6-12 acres for them alone.



And statues are easy. We just invite people to make them and place them: the garden would be the main priority!

According to my calculations an acre of corn can sustain 10 people.   I'd explain how I think we should break up the land but this thread should stay focused on the list so I'll make a new thread.
