Edible Forest Gardens: Access & Circulation 4

We had a great day today starting the second phase of our homestead Edible Forest Garden.  The first phase of our design was to build several small duck ponds with interconnecting swales.  This fertilized water along with our movable chicken ship created a very fertile soil.  Today we looked over our designs for the area made some on the ground adjustments (the map is not the territory) and we implemented the pathways.  We flagged the paths, looked it over, noticed nodal patterns emerging, made some more adjustments, and then laid down cardboard over paths, added some sawdust on top and this is what we got.  Next week we plant!

      Hey! Thanks for the comment. Yes familiar faces indeed. I thought a lot about that! The paths are a mix of yours and an additional path with a node. Good to hear from you. Thanks for everything!
