Orchard Project

Post by 12acrehome on Mon Apr 09, 2012 11:29 am

The Plan:
Locate a place that could be home to a small family orchard, clean it up, and begin soil preparations. The Orchard is to be home to Pear, Apple, Plum, filbert, english walnuts, and grapes.

I located the place where soil is well drained, and there is plenty of air flow, a lower spot that would delay budding until the risk of frost had passed.





As you can see I had my work cut out for me. Out came the brush Scythe, the Axe, and the Machette. After a few hours of work...





Still had some work to do, this was done in Dec 2011. I have done more clearing since, and will post more pic's and updates as we go.

Yesterday I was given 6 Damson Plum trees that we decided to put in the front yard, since we are lacking a wind break as well as shade on that side of the house.

A very good idea about the windbreak.
And how wonderful it will be, one day, to have an orchard too. Smile

Looks and sounds good Keith. I'll be looking forward to more posts and pictures as this project progresses. I love it. Many times I have wished for my own place where I could develop it as you are doing. Someday perhaps I will be able to.

We prayed and searched for the perfect place for us for years (20+) finally the Lord led us here, be patient all things come in his time. In the meantime I will gladly share what I do here, the successes and failures, as both are learning opportunities
