Trees! Trees! Trees!

We received our shipment of trees for the orchard but had to wait a day before planting them. They were all bareroot so we lined them up in the yard and covered them with wet blankets.

Here are some of the root systems on these beauties.

I have some 3n1 Apples, Shinko and Hosui Asian Pears, SugarCane Jujube, Black Mission Fig, Plums and Angel Red Pomegranates.

The first thing I did was go plant five at my neighbors house down the street so she could start on her home orchard. I also picked through the trees to find the best additions to my house and one Plum for my mother-in-law next door. I still have two Black Mission figs that might find a home around town.
