Garden chronicles, the orchard~

It's been thirty years since I planted an orchard, today felt like Christmas when I added over a dozen more varieties of fruits, some I never even heard of. With level land I can't wait to harvest buckets full of goodness in the years to come!

I use my blog like a reference library, recipes I love, moments in time I enjoy and now recording my garden layouts so five years from now I can check back to see which cultivars names worked out the best. 28 years ago I planted a pluiot, no one had even heard of them, today you can buy them by the box full at Costco. As exotic as pluiots were decades ago, now spelled pluots, but I am old school, I had that same wild thrill today adding aprium, nectaplums and pluerrys. While the rest of the country is freezing, I have been planting on the dry days between the rain, flighty to enjoy our first springs rewards.
