Took the time on the weekend (now that the weather has settled down) to plant some fruit trees.......The girls helped clear up the ground so that I could plant the Avocado tree....not sure how this will go but have been told by experts that there should be no problem......hopefully in a few years will have some avo's....yum..
|The girls got very busy preparing the garden bed for the Avocado tree.....|
|Plenty of mulch and a bit of protection....apparently the experts (Pete the Permie)|
tells me you need to protect the roots from nosy chooks scratching around.....
Hopefully one day I will have avocado's......YUM
|Also planted a couple of apple trees....this is a blenheim orange....apparently|
perfect for growing in our area....should see lovely apples in May...not sure what year !!
|This apple tree is an Arkane...should produce apples in February...once again...|
could be a bit of a wait....but how exciting when we do get an apple !!!
|Also planted a Damson Plum tree....perfect for jam making.....this should bear fruit in|
the next 12 months I have been told...hhhmmmm will wait and see... love plum jam !!
|How much fun can you get from a bag of your own potatoes....you wouldn't believe me !!|
