Putting down roots…

Leave a comment

It’s Earth Day and I have always been inspired by those who would plant a tree in honor of this day (even though I kinda feel like we should appreciate our home every day of the year, but that is a different story…). Anyway, now that we actually have a large enough yard and a farmer friend who gave us a couple trees (thanks, Bruce!), we decided to put down some roots. We planted: 1 dwarf peach, 1 dwarf cherry and 2 semi-dwarf plum trees. Maybe we will have fruit in a few years! Below are a few pics of the process.
