MountainBiker, that’s the beauty of forest gardens… You will have some food after the plunders come in and clean out your garden and kill and eat all your livestock… and occupy your house. Be prepared. Expect the plunders to come after the main house, garden and livestock. Have a hidden fallback position and caches in a number of stealthy locations combined with stealthy food production.
Happy 2015! It looks like a rosy year.
