We have long planned to add fruit trees to our property. This year I asked for them for a Mother's Day gift and my husband was happy to comply.
Looking south back toward the house...two peach, then two apples.
We bought Crest Haven and Garnet Beauty peaches...
And Liberty and Old Smokehouse apples...
Tim took some scrubby trees down that we have on our property. They were growing out of the trunks of trees that previous owners had cut down, but had not removed the stumps. This made for messy trees, very weak and unstable. Basically they needed to be removed and this was a good time to do it.
Tim burned a lot of it but most of it is being chopped up today for bonfire wood.
The two strawberry beds have been weeded and are flowering well. We are going to have a nice crop of fruit by the end of the month.
I love these kinds of improvements. I like that we have room to have our property work for us - it's not just a pretty property but we have a garden, and now fruit trees. Oh, and a batch of chicks on the way - 7 Black Australorps and 1 Silver laced Wyandotte. So pretty! Cash the Rooster will be a happy fella in a few months!
