Rebuilding the Orchard - More Apple trees
This orchard has a Agricultural water meter which means I get a little break on the water bill. I need to keep 75 fruit or nut trees on the property which is subject to a water dept audit. I was down to 74 trees. I planted three more trees today. We planted a mid pride peach, and also a Golden Dorsett apple tree which is the pollinator for the Anna Apple I planted last week. Finally, I planted a Pluot which is a cross between a apricot and plum. Here are some pictures of the planted Trees. Thanks to Nick from the Riverside Food Cooperative who helped plant the trees today. The white fluff ball is a the neighbors dog who loves to visit me when I am working in back.
