Planning is key, because you must know where you are planting, the dimensions of the plot, and plot characteristics to produce the best possible yield.
When choosing your plot, look for:
- Self accessibility (is it easy to get to?)
- Sunlight (at least 5 hours)
- Water accessibility
- Land quality
- Threats (animals, bugs, etc..)
- Ways to reduce costs (along an existing fence will reduce one side of your costs, or along the side of a barn or wall will reduce one side)
Update: April 9th: We will actually be extending our plot to include a larger area, enclosing some raspberry bushes, and an Asian pear tree. This will increase our price for fencing a little bit more, but it will be worth it.
