Toward the back of our yard we have a long open strip we’ve nicknamed “the orchard”, despite containing nothing more than grass. Â 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. Â 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. Â I ordered a small cherry tree and gave our orchard a proper groundbreaking. Â 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 :)
