    2+ trees in one hole is not a good way to go in my experience. Space them at the minimum distances for a healthier, less stressed and better yielding tree. I think it was just a method of greedy nurserymen to try and sell more trees. I did this around 10 years ago and am currently in the process of undoing it…if I had my time again I would definitely have done it different. The few trees that were better spaced are by far my best yielders and healthiest specimens.

    In Fl sandy soil. Supplemented with mulch fertilize with miracle grow plants small zucchini blossoms fell off. The only things we have eaten have been peppers tomatoes sweet potato. Everything else died should I use straw instead of mulch.

    Friendly tip: try not to ramble, it distracts from your message and is hard to watch. I like watching your videos for content but end up skipping through them and getting annoyed because of the rabbit trails.

    Out of curiosity, why raised beds? Raised beds are used to help the soil drain in wet climates so that the plants don't drown.
