10 Years Later, From Normal Backyard To Permaculture Garden (Unseen Footage)

10 years ago I started planting fruit trees and other fruiting perennials in my backyard garden. The goal at the time was to create a food forest garden that would be a mixture of both annual fruits and vegetables, and perennial fruits and vegetables. A permaculture garden is one that seeks to not only provide a good yield, but also aims to mimic nature and apply the patterns and examples from nature into the design of the garden. Gardening with permaculture principles in mind will ultimately lead to a bigger more sustainable yield for the current year, and years to come.

  1. Fantastic work doned!!
    You and Tuck are amazing! 😍🍀💚🍒🍓🍎🍉🍑🍊🍐🍏🫐🍇🍅🥕🥒🥬🥦🍆🫑🥗🥝🥬🥒☀️

  2. I've been following your channel for a while now. I think this video does a great job of showing the progress made in your food forest. Thanks for sharing this

  3. Your comment about Tuck not wanting to hire a cat just cracked us up! My partner Mike absolutely loves your videos. He discovered your channel this past winter and has gotten many great ideas from you. Keep up the good work!!

  4. That's just beautiful!! You should be very proud of all your hard work!!

  5. James this is so awesome!! Love the video, thank you! How often do you have to put more woodchips down? When you reapply, how much do you do, and do you put them down everywhere (except the raised beds)? Thanks!

  6. 💕💕🐕Tuck 🐕💕💕 James, can you do a video about the sprays you use – how and when you mix and apply them?

  7. I kept mulched leaves all winter zone 5 then planted without disturbing the mulch. Now in July I'm finding many, many grubs under that mulch. Is that Good or bad? What do you suggest? I just don't want them traveling to my nearby lawn.

  8. Gorgeous. That’s not enough apples though 😢 we have one semi-dwarf haralred apple tree and our best year we got over 100lbs of apples. We made soooo much apple sauce, pies and crisps and gave tons away. Saw that cool tip for hanging water melon on another channel too! So smart!! We can’t keep the raccoons off our peach tree

  9. Gives me hope as we continue transforming our yard into a food scape. Definitely made a bunch of mistakes but we’re making adjustments.
    Between James’ enthusiasm and Gardner Scott’s knowledge of our unique CO challenges, I think we’re going to start seeing some good production next summer.
    Side note- If anyone in the TR area fishes, hit me up. I’ll be in the Ortley surf and on the docks behind Stewart’s on 35 in a just a couple weeks.

  10. Jerzee James & Tuck, evolution of a pool patch to full grown produce stand! Amazing…. And Tuck helped with it all! Get a Jack Russel, they will fix the tree rat population! They love to chase & bark at them! Got one, Peanut, she is a rescue! Green is good, beautiful & my favorite color! ♥️🐾🐾💚🌎💚

  11. Thank y’all for this incredible video! There are so many gardening videos online and so many new gardeners that it’s good to have videos like these showing that nothing happens overnight and it didn’t always look like this. I find myself getting discouraged quite often as well.

    It’s easy to fall into the trap of negative self talk. Noticing what’s wrong is so much easier than giving credit for what’s right. Telling yourself you don’t know what you’re doing, it’s too hard, there is too much to learn, or the garden is not as good as everyone else’s and it’s time to just quit is a struggle. It’s easy to forget how our concept of time and how our environment’s concept of time are two opposing forces. The time that nature takes is much longer than ours.

    I heard somewhere that the 3rd year is really when there’s a noticeable shift in the garden. After taking time to develop the soil and attract beneficial insects—which may not have been around in any big numbers to begin with—the microclimate established in the garden is really beginning to noticeably balance itself out around that time.

    So again, thank you James and thank you Tuck! Keep growing on!!

  12. I love seeing how your food forest progressed. You have the best food forest ever. Thank you.

  13. Hi James,
    Thanks for another awesome video. Although I've been creating my garden for about 13 years now, from total wild brushy area, and even some small wooded areas towards the back I am still inspired and motivated by your videos. Are garden are quite similar in ways, and quite different in other ways, but they are years in the making, and ever changing. Keep doing a great job, and give Tuck a high five for me. I'd love to show you a drone shot of my garden if you would be interested. Let me know how I can send a picture to you. God Bless, Mike

  14. James, you and Tuck are such an inspiration to all gardeners everywhere. I have been gardening for many years, and I am still trying new foods in the garden because of you and Tuck. ❤️❤️❤️

  15. Even though I miss you terribly over the winter, there is something distinctly beautiful about the vivid cycle of death and rebirth that your farm displays each and every year due to the harsh weather conditions 🥰
