Chapter Members only, please
Although Fang and Jeny have only lived in their home for 2 years they already have 15 pomegranates, 16 grapes, 2 jujube,
3 stone fruits, and 5 cherimoyas with lots of grafts on them. There is a huge Chinaberry tree in the middle of the property that’s
preventing them from planting under its canopy. They do a lot of close, staggered rows of plantings to save space.
At their home along the 5 freeway flood zone, the soil is different from the soil in the valleys. The ground is sandy: water and
shovels go freely through it. But with enough mulch and compost and plantings, it can become very good soil.
