New Orchard!

Ahh - today we planted our fruit trees to begin our new orchard!  For anyone new joining the blog - our apple and cherry trees were wiped out during various storms this year.

Our cherry tree is trying to make a come back - new growth and new leaves.
Mom and dad's birthday gift to me were some fruit trees.  They were delivered last week but between rain and busy schedules we hadn't had a chance to plant them.  Today turned out being lovely and we decided they needed to go in the ground this afternoon.  Five apple trees and three cherry trees.

Next year we'll have to add pear trees!
