Does any one have a self sustaining annual garden/forest garden? I want to design a garden that takes very little maintainence. Fruit and vegetable trees vines bushes and roots. I live in north central WV and am in zone 5a. I would like to do this on about 1-1.5 acres. Plants that help keep out both animal and insect pests would be nice. Also information on plants that should and should not be planted next to each other. We have had a few dry years here also so I would like to take that into account. Any suggestions???
