"What are you guys doing?" "Uhhh....we're just trying to cause trouble." No lies, just truth. Ha I love that.

Cut off everything below the graft. Keep mulch away from the trunk, never cover the graft. It encourages collar rot and your tree will die. Feed and mulch and wait for them to recover.

Anything BELOW the graft goes. This collection of suckers will drain all the energy and offer nothing appropriate. for you and yours. Don't be expending energy and growing stuff that ain't food stuff.
Best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago.
Consider setting your planting of trees into a "food forest" giving lines and spaces for shrubs (blueberry?) in between and ground cover. Mowing in between can be a great option but think about a (not necessarily electric) fence for chickens between the rows of trees once the trees reach four foot in height.
Use the berry plants as your shrubs between your food forest trees.
Anyone know where the place is they got the hamburgers in Michigan. NC is a looong drive MI no so much

Cut the root stock suckers completely. Almost all fruit trees are grafts. Don't do any big pruning until winter.

Apples are grafted trees. Over winter cut back the suckers and keep an eye on them afterwards. Apples are best pruned right after they bloom. Then again when they become dormant The apple trees might also be stressed if the walnut trees are within a 1000 feet of the apples. Walnuts naturally kill apple trees. You may need a barrier tree between the two. Pear trees are a good type to ward off the walnut trees.
Have y’all thought about investing in a wood chipper? Would allow you to clear brush and get wood chips all at once. I’ve found some reasonably priced models on Amazon

How sweet y'all are! I love your video's and don't worry about answering! Get your home ready and I will love to see the progress, God Bless!

For comments after your videos, do certain word searches and make a note of those questions, and then do other main topic searches, and then do a question and answer video or chat time to answer recurring questions. That way everyone gets the info they want and you haven’t had to reply to everyone individually. Best wishes for your continued success.

Look up Geoff Lawton. Zaytuna Farm. Geoff was trained in permaculture by the founder of permaculture, Bill Mollison.
All your answers are there for your property. He has lots of information on YouTube that will help you. He can show how to start from the ground up.
Having lived on land many years ago. We are planning to return to land and start our own permaculture farm hopefully sooner than later.
Good luck guys.

I am very proud for your family, your living the dream. its going to be an amazing journey.

get some round basils of hay and just put it on top the dirt and you can grow anything--even without mulch

You would be better off with raised beds in clay. No mater how much compost you add, the clay just sucks it up. I have land in Northern MN, all clay. My dad tried for years to raise vegetables on the ground with little to no luck.

Maybe your first money making endeavor could be propagating cuttings from all those raspberries and selling them? So excited for you guys! Cheering you on from Chicagoland!
