Gardening Sunday - Our Orchard!

Howdy  -

Well "We"  have an Orchard!! Hubby just loves it when I include myself in all his hard work! :0)



Now of course when I went out to take photos the wind started blowing 30MPH! 12 trees I believe are now in the ground. Not a huge Orchard but for us it is a great start. The peach trees have fruit on them, of course we may loose them now that we have planted them, first year in the ground and all. But we will try and keep them if we can. One of the Peach trees has 14 fruit on it already... and now the Apple trees are starting to bloom like crazy!

I will have to get variety names for you once Hubby is done with the planting and we get everything listed -


This one is my Granny Smith Apple tree!! I insisted on this one for some yummy baking apples!


Now that the trees are in the ground he has started working on getting the Veggie Garden prepared.


 Now if you don't remember the greenhouse is 12 feet wide and 36 feet long... so you can see he is working up a pretty big place to work with this Spring! I am guessing he will start putting out things this week... gonna be so yummy!!!

Hope you have a blessed Sunday -

I do not think I will show this all to my DH he will die of jealousy! Everything is looking good. We tried working in the yard yesterday and it is still frozen. :(

Great to see your trees in the ground, I hope they thrive & I'm sure they will, given all the care & attention they're going to get.

Was out trimming our 30+ apple trees yesterday before they bud. Been such an awesome learning experience having these. Not to mention the amount of apples we get. :)
