Urban orchard

On Easter Sunday, T. and I took a ride out to Miller Nurseries. A good friend had been the previous day and brought us some dwarf fruit trees, which only whet our appetite for more. We decided we must add a mini fruit orchard to our urban homestead.

So, in addition to the four-varieties-in-one multi-grafted apple tree that we bought a couple of years ago, we now have Brown Turkey figs, Moongold and Chinese dwarf apricots, an X-tra dwarfed Bing cherry tree, and Garden Gold peaches (that's the peach tree below and its bud above).

It doesn't look like much now, and it will take a year or two, but I can't wait to harvest my own fruit!

And if any of my readers, have fruit growing tips, please pass them along...this is new territory.
