Planting Fruit Trees 2020


This year more than any other we’ve have started plating fruit trees. I regret not beginning to plant fruit trees when we first moved to this property in 2003, as the saying goes “Today is the the next best time to plant a Tree.

We hope plant at least one perhaps two trees every fortnight so will add 26 or 52 trees a year to the garden.  

Will the garden be able to sustain that many trees? Yes, I reckon so, and a lot more after that.

It’s worth noting that I have planted a number of other types tree over the last 10 year or so but nothing like I could have done, and most certainly should have done 18 years ago. 

As it’s the last day of 2020 I thought we would share our progress so far.

So once I complete this note Lyd and I will be off to the local store to buy a few more.  …. so back again after a visit to the Peachester Fruit shop where we got a a few African Flame Lillies and lovely Black Mulberry  tree,  and from Frouloffs we bought a coffee tree, and from the CO-OP I bought a variety of Mealies, Sweet Corn seeds and a Chillie bus, and finally from ALDI some Basin all of which I have planted today.  The Fox aka Troy kindly have us some purple granadilla’s so I cut five up and planted them as well. I also planted some ginger. We still have a few more days of rain so they will get plenty of water.  I will throw up a few more photos when I get a moment.
