2010 Plant List (So Far)

The girls enjoy planting some seeds on this unseasonable warm and sunny afternoon.


4) hazelnut trees
4) apple trees
1) cherry tree
1) plum tree
1) spruce tree (not part of the orchard but still, a tree)

this is, of course, in addition to the fruit trees we already have: three pears, an apple, a cherry and a plum. If I can keep all these trees alive, I think they will amply provide for our fruit related needs.

I want to plant more potatoes, but other than that, I'm done for a month or two, until it's time to buy warm-weather starts and direct sow warmer-weather crops. I plan on growing tomatoes, chiles, summer squash, and pumpkins. Homero wants tomatillos, cilantro, green onions, and maybe corn. We have a friendly rivalry going. He won't read any gardening books or listen to a word I say (he wanted to direct sow tomato seed, the silly man) so we have a bet going on whose garden will do better. The stakes are what we always bet: foot massages.

I hope Homero wins so that he gets to give you a foot massage.

Nice orchard your putting together. I really need to get motivated on my gardening.
Have a good day!

I like Homero's intuitive gardening style! good you are giving him a chance to grow his way, you just might be surprised!
