A neighbor sent me pics of their fruit trees and I can’t wait for our bare root trees to arrive!
We’ll be placing our order on time for delivery as soon as they start shipping. If you’d like to add to our order, please join us at a High Desert Gardening Club meeting or contact me directly.
I love peaches! We have a volunteer peach tree in our hoophouse, probably from a peach pit in the compost. We’ll take the plastic off next spring and turn the hoophouse area into a garden.
We also have two Chinese apricot trees in the hoophouse. I grew them from seed and we’re hopeful that we might get some apricots next year.
One of our Fuji apple trees was relocated from Meadview and we’re not sure whether it’ll make it. It was HUGE, had already leaved out and the trunk split at the bottom from pulling it out with a tow rope around the trunk. I wanted to put it around the root ball — but why would anyone ever listen to me??? 🙂
Our other Fuji usually flowers and then the wind blows most blossoms off and of course it freezes again. This year we had one little apple ripening and we don’t know what happened to it. It probably got harvested by the same critters that took every single prickly pear fruit.
That’s why we’re building the orchard with wind protection and much better fencing.
It’s VERY inspiring to look at these pictures and see that we CAN harvest fruit before the critters get it!
