Toward the back of our yard we have a long open strip we’ve nicknamed “the orchard”, despite containing nothing more than grass. Since fruit trees cost both time and money, it would be years at the earliest before we could stroll along and pluck juicy peaches and plums from flowering branches. But the potential is there, at least in our imagination.
Stella Cherry Tree
To celebrate our first anniversary and our first summer on the farm, I wanted to take one little step toward that orchard dream. I ordered a small cherry tree and gave our orchard a proper groundbreaking. The tree is little more than a stick with a few leaves still clinging, but it is the start of something wonderful.
Take care, and have a great week :)
