Build Your Outdoor Pantry
Why go to the store when you already have food in your pantry? This is the mentality behind building a fruiting system that lines the outside of your home. Instead of forgetting to pickup fruit at the store, you can take a stroll right outside between April and June to pick some for your breakfast.
Fresh fruit is one that is still growing and ripening when you're eating it and there is only one location that can provide that.
Right outside your door
In much of the Southeast something fresh can be available to eat. A year round food pantry can be built from April through December using a combination of different fruiting species.
Pears, Blueberries, Mulberries, Citrus, Chestnuts, Persimmons, Elderberries, Blackberries, Peaches, Plums, Pomegranates and yes, even Apples.
Build an Outdoor Pantry Today
The thing about an outdoor pantry is it doesn't magically come into being. You'll need the education and the materials to do it. Building a nature driven food pantry requires a little forethought, infrequent work, and a bit of patience but it most certainly pays off in short order.
Delicious mulberries come in about 1 to 2 years.
Then blueberries at 2 and 3 years.
Then much of the pome and stone fruits will begin to pay off.
